W. Eugene Smith Grant: Deadline June 3

The deadline for applications for the 2011 W. Eugene Smith Grant for Humanistic Photography is Friday, June 3. The $30,000 grant is given annually to recognize and support a photographer pursuing a humanistic photography project in the tradition of photojournalist W. Eugene Smith.  An additional $5,000 in fellowship money is dispersed, at the discretion of the jury, to one or more finalists deemed worthy of special recognition.

The W. Eugene Smith Fund chooses a three-member jury to evaluate the written proposals for the grant and submitted images.  Past recipients have included Darcy Padilla, Paolo Pellegrin, Ernesto Bazan, Lu Guang, Stanley Greene, Chien-Chi Chang, Graciela Iturbide, Brenda Ann Kenneally, and James Nachtwey.

Applications, rules and instructions can be found on the Smith Fund web site.

The Smith Fund Web site has just been redesigned by MediaStorm (one of the grant sponsors) and incorporates the MediaStorm Player.  Expanded slide shows by past grant recipients back to 1980 can now be viewed on the site. You can also donate to the fund through the site, to continue its support of photojournalism.
