Deadline: 31 March 2013
The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for Documentary Photography & Film has added an award to its 2013 grant program to now include short-short documentary filmmaking.
Their call for 2013 entries is open for both documentary photography and film submissions.
The foundation seeks outstanding entries focusing on the lives and populations ravaged by war, famine, disease, poverty, religious persecution, political oppression, forced migration and other human injustices.
One winning submission in each category will be selected by a jury. The foundation awards a $5000 grant for the production or completion of a social documentary photography project, and a $5000 prize for a completed social documentary film.
The top twelve photography grant entries will be exhibited in July 2013 during the Rencontres d’Arles, the international photography festival in Arles, France. The photography grant winner will be selected and announced in Arles by an international jury including:
- Michael Benson: Director of the Prix Pictet;
- Christian Caujolle: Founder of Agency VU and Gallery VU; Founder and Arts Director of Photo Phnom Penh festival;
- Lucien Clergue: Founder of the Rencontres d’Arles and President of the French Académie des Beaux-Arts;
- W.M. Hunt: Collector, curator and consultant – a champion of photography and the author of “The Unseen Eye: Photographs from the Unconscious”.
2013 entries for the photography grant must be received by March 31, 2013.
