The Nikon Reportage Grant for Australian Social Photo-Documentary
Open to Australian and International Photographers
Nikon Australia and the Reportage Festival are pleased to announce their collaboration in launching a new photography grant.
The first of it’s kind in Australia, this biennial grant will be for $10,000 to provide an opportunity for a photographer to research, create and produce a new and compelling social documentary work in Australia.
Graig Gillespie, Marketing Manager at Nikon comments, “We at Nikon feel strongly about investing in social documentary photography in Australia and continuing our long-standing commitment with professional photographers. Fostering new perspectives is something we are particularly excited about.”
We are now inviting photographers to submit a proposal for a story they wish to photograph.
The story must present an aspect of life in Australia, whether it be concerned with an individual, a family, a community or an aspect of a community. The story may observe relationships between people, or between people and their environment. New and previously untold stories will be of particular interest.
The grant is open to professional photographers of all nationalities and must be used to document a story within Australia.
An independent and disclosed jury of three will decide on the recipient for the grant and this will be announced on the opening night of the Reportage Festival in October 2008.
The photographer will have until August 2010 to complete their project, which will be shown at the Reportage Festival in 2010.
Deadline for Proposals is Friday 15th August, 2008
