I have a fairly complete list of grants and awards for still photographers, which just now is on a database in my computer, but if I can figure out how to input it here, I will gladly share it with everyone. just give me a few days. Jon Anderson.

Thanks Jon, glad to see your post! Is the database you’ve got small enough to email me? If so, please feel free to do that.

I’m thinking maybe we can put together a proper event/deadline database in the site. Viewing a lot of examples would really help me structure the back-end. Thanks!

FiftyCrows: Social Change Photography

========== ANNOUNCING THE 2004 CALL-FOR-ENTRIES ==========

Now in its 14th year, the International Fund for Documentary Photography
competition remains one of the premiere photography programs in the world.
As the core program of FiftyCrows, the Photo Fund supports emerging
documentary photographers whose outstanding ability in visual storytelling
leads us to a better understanding of our common humanity.

The Photo Fund continues to provide monetary grants to the Winners, but has
evolved to include distribution of the winning essays to a worldwide
audience of millions in order to bring about awareness leading to action and
positive social change.

FiftyCrows has spent the last year developing a new model for the way the
International Fund for Documentary Photography functions. The net results

- a streamlined application process,
- more opportunities for photographers,
- better collaboration with our strategic partners, and thus,
- greater effectiveness in achieving the FiftyCrows mission.

FiftyCrows is pleased to announce the first of these new style of Photo Fund
competitions. The competition is focused on Central Asia & the Caucasus.

We encourage you to APPLY NOW!

FiftyCrows is a non-profit organization supported through grants, individual
donations, and the sale of fine prints. We exist to support documentary
photographers and to assure that their photo essays are seen by millions of
people worldwide. As funding permits, we are creating ways for people to
take action and mandate positive social change around the issues raised in
the photo essays. Just CLICK below if you’d like to support us.

Hi Balazs, thank you for your list. However, am I the only one who isn’t able to see your notes as links (they were supposed to appear as links to related websites right?)?

Wow, thanks Balazs. And thanks Teru for the thread and thanks for the links everyone.

Btw, perhaps slightly off topic, but looking for something completely different on the internet the other day I bumped into this: www.learnerassociates.net/proposal/

It’s not exactly for photojournalistic projects but there might be some useful tips anyway…

Would it become too complicated if there was an own thread for every month? In which there would be exhibitions that open/close THAT single month, deadlines of THAT month for grants/awards etc.

What do you think?

Well, here you can find a photo comepetition for young photographers under 30.
The Courier is pleased to announce the ‘2010 ACP Courier Photo Competition’
Established in 1970, The Courier, formerly known as the ACP-EU Courier, is an important source of information on cooperation between African, Caribbean and Pacific countries and the European Union. After a four-year break in 2003, the bi-monthly magazine re-launched in 2007 with a fresh, contemporary take on North-South relations.
One of the five aims of The Courier is to give more space to artists coming from the ACP countries: we believe artists can provide an extraordinary contribution to the understanding of local contexts, through artworks that capture the richness and complexity of the world. 
With the ‘ACP Courier Photo Competition’, The Courier aims to increase the visibility of young photographers and encourage the use of photography as a tool to reflect on, and describe, the societies and world around us.
The themes of the competition relate to African, Caribbean and Pacific countries with a focus on development, trade, climate change, culture and science and technology.
This competition is open to photographers, from an ACP country, under the age of 30.
A prize of €1000 will be awarded to the best photograph.
The winner will be selected by an international jury of professionals in the field of photography. Events and exhibitions will also be held in Brussels on the occasion of the ‘2010 ACP Courier Photo Competition’ prize ceremony.
Deadline for submissions is 15 September 2010, 18:00 (Central European Time).
More detailed information under:
Please let me know if it was in your interest.
