Call for Proposals: Documentary Photography Audience Engagement Grant, USA

The Open Society Documentary Photography Project is offering a grant to support alternative models for presenting and disseminating documentary photography to the public.
The Audience Engagement Grant (formerly called the Distribution Grant) supports photographers to take an existing body of work on a social justice or human rights issue and devise an innovative way of using that work as a catalyst for social change.
We are interested in well-designed projects that inspire audiences visually and create meaningful interactions with photographic content.
Projects should combine existing bodies of work with programming or tools that give viewers a deeper, more nuanced understanding of issues and empower them to participate in the process of improving their own or others’ realities. Projects should also include a partnership between a photographer and an organization that combines expertise in documentary photography with experience working on the topic or community the project addresses.
Five to eight grants of $5,000 to $30,000 will be awarded.

Scholarship Application Deadline: 13 May 2011
