The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University is accepting submissions for their $3,000 Documentary Essay Prize now through February 16, 2016. The prize honors a documentary photography project that is ongoing or that has been completed in the past two years.

The three-year old award alternates year to year in honoring writing and photography. The previous winner for photography was Latvian photographer Iveta Vaivode, for her series “Somewhere on a Disappearing Path,” which reimagined the photographer’s family album.

In addition to the cash award, the winner will have his or her work featured on the CDS website and in their periodical Document. The work will also become part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Library, Duke University.

The winner will be announced in June 2016.
