Photographers worldwide can apply for a US$5,000 grant to support a social documentary project.
The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for International Photography aims to create an online showcase of outstanding photography worldwide and award a grant to one social documentary photographer to aid in the production or completion of a project.
Photos and proposed projects should be based on pressing social issues in developing nations or communities of poverty, health, oppression, war, famine, religious/political persecution and similar issues.
Applicants must submit one contact sheet with up to 15 images, an essay describing their work, a project proposal, resume and headshot by May 31.
Selected photographers will be asked to submit full-size images to the online showcase and one finalist will receive the grant.
