The W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund and the Aperture Foundation are sponsoring a panel discussion called, “Strategies for Photographers: Thoughts On How To Apply For Fellowships and Other Competitions,” to be held Monday, March 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Aperture Foundation in New York City. The event will be free and open to the public.

The panelists, all former head jurors for the W. Eugene Smith Grant for Humanistic Photography, will share their experiences judging grants and competitions, including the W. Eugene Smith Grant, World Press Photo, the Getty Images grants, PDN contests and others. The participants are David Friend of Vanity Fair, collector W.M. Hunt, Marcel Saba of Redux Pictures and Lauren Wendle of Photo District News.
