American Photographic Artists (APA) is launching a scholarship of $5,000 to be awarded to “a deserving established professional photographer for a specific project.” The grant will be administered by the Lucie Foundation.
“As a photographic educator I see the need for new ways to help photographers along their individual path,” says Tony Gale, APA National Board Member & APA New York Chapter Representative.
The selection committee will be made up of three jurors: Lucie Foundation founder Hossein Farmani, Lucie Foundation executive director Cat Jimenez, and one representative of APA, as yet unnamed. The scholarship is, according to APA, “open to all professional photographers.” There are no guidelines or restrictions on what the project’s topic, scope, genre or date of completion can be.
Starting November 1, interested photographers can apply for the grant by uploading a project proposal, a biography or CV, a selection of digital images, and additional information to the scholarship Web site, www.luciefoundation.org/education/scholarship-APA_2011_2012.php. The application fee is $25.
The deadline is April 30, 2012. The application can be found on the Lucie Foundation’s scholarship page.
