For the fifth consecutive year, The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for Documentary Photography & Film invites documentary photographers and filmmakers globally to submit documentary work covering social issues impacting populations around the world. One submission in each category will be selected to receive US$5,000.00 in funding. The documentary photography grant will be awarded for the completion or start and completion of a photographic project. The documentary short-short film award will be awarded to an outstanding filmmaker for an already completed documentary short film.
