Hi Teru, thanks so much for your kind posting. I’m just a one-man band, and it’s sad that I don’t have a secretary to do all this for me. :) But I’ll try to remember at least some of it. Thank you again!

From the page:

The next round for proposals to apply for a research grant from Journalismfund.eu is now open. The overall amount to be distributed this time will be € 25.000, the deadline for applications is June 14th 2010 at 12 o’clock noon.

For the first time we now offer two types of grants: One for cross-border reporting, and one for stories about European affairs. Read the rules for applications and assessment criteria. Applications are only accepted via the online application form.

Journalismfund.eu has had some very interesting applications, two of them are already published, one unveiled terrible working conditions of trafficked workers, and one unveiled dodgy business schemes in several countries.

However the criteria did not allow for journalism where only one colleague was doing the research on a European subject. We hope, that the new choice between cross-border reporting and European affairs stories will allow a broader variety of stories in this call for proposals.

With this call we also introduce an almost two months application period. The prolonged time to write the application will hopefully allow for some well-prepared applications. In the last round the jury had to turn down some interesting looking applications, because they were not clear enough or left too many open questions.

The outcome of the jury meeting will be announced on June 22nd.

In order to help applicants with the formalities of their applications, there will be arranged a series of skype chats, where interested journalists are welcome to reserve a time slot to get one-to-one advice about the application procedure.

The skype sessions will be arranged on April 28th, May 7th and May 10th , each of the days from 9am to 12 am Brussels time. The skype address is journalismfund.eu. If there is further need, further dates will be announced. Please reserve a time for the chat via brigitte.alfter@journalismfund.eu. Of course interested colleagues are also welcome to send questions directly by mail.

The new features for for this application are another step in our development of the best practice for this model of distributing European grants for journalistic research. The development of Journalismfund.eu and the research grants are supported by the Norwegian Fritt Ord Foundation and the Open Society Media Program aswell as via the Fonds Pascal Decroos by the government of Flanders in Belgium.

General Information and Eligibility Requirements

The Aaron Siskind Foundation is offering a limited number of fellowship grants of up to $7,000 each, for individual artists working in still photography and photo-based art. Grant recipients and award amounts will be determined by a review panel based on artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium in its widest sense.

Applicants must apply online using the CueRate application system. Mailed applications and work samples are not accepted.

Who May Apply: U.S. citizens whose primary residence is in the United States, or Legal Permanent Residents of the U.S. (“green card" holders). Applicants must be 21 years of age or older. Fellowship recipients must provide proof of eligibility and a verifiable social security number.

Who May Not Apply: Students who are now enrolled or who will be enrolled in any college degree program at any time during 2010 or 2011. Previous fellowship recipients are not being considered for new awards at this time.

Fellowship recipients will be notified in late summer of 2010. Names of recipients and panelists will be posted and announced shortly thereafter. Other applicants will not receive notification.

The decisions of the Aaron Siskind Foundation and its designated judging panel as to who receives fellowship support and in what amounts will be final, private, and without appeal. As required by law, award funds must be used to further the artist’s creative endeavors. Recipients will be asked to provide a summary of the uses to which award funds were put. Funds will be taxable to recipients in 2010. ASF retains recipients’ image files and supporting application materials for our records. All other applicants’ submitted files are purged from our database.

Online Application Information

Internet access and a working email address are needed to apply using the CueRate Online Application system. Once you have registered online, you can work on your application in multiple sessions, saving as you go, until you are ready to submit a completed application. You can apply at any time up until the deadline; however, your application must be successfully received by May 17, 2010 at 11:59 pm EST. We recommend applying well in advance, in order to avoid technical problems. Note: to access the 2010 application, you must create a new account. Logins and passwords from previous years are no longer valid.

A completed application consists of the following information & files:

Applicant Profile: Name and contact information

Work Samples: A portfolio of eight (8) image files showing representative, recent work. If your work is best communicated visually by showing its physical or installed nature, or aspects of detail, you may use one or more of the eight images for that purpose.

Text descriptors for each image: Title, Year Completed, Medium, Dimensions

Career summary, artist’s resume or short bio (500 words maximum)

Work Statement: (350 words maximum) The purpose of the statement is to give the review panel a better understanding of your work, while they are viewing it. Your statement should be clear, concise and relate to the work samples you submit.

About your Work Samples

Exactly eight (8) digital image files must be uploaded, no more and no less. Images will be projected for the review panel via high-definition digital projectors and viewed at roughly 30”x40” per image. With regard to the order of your images, please consider that they will be projected in two groups of four images, in the order that you upload them (Images # 1-4 will be projected first, followed by Images # 5-8).

Images must be JPG files with the .jpg extension. The recommended color profile is sRGB. Maximum file size for uploading is 2 MB. Image size can be no larger than 1240 × 1240 pixels (a smaller image will be shown against a 1240 x1240 black background). Images should be 72 DPI, any higher will unnecessarily increase your file size. File names may only include keyboard characters: a-z, 0-9 and _ and cannot include any blank spaces. More information about preparing and uploading your images is available in the Instructions and Help sections of the online application.

Problems and Questions

The CueRate online application provides a Help/FAQ page where you can read common questions and answers. There is a link to email CueRate tech support if you have a technical question or problem. For questions about the grant program or application requirements, there is a link to email a grant administrator. Important: Remember to click the “Save Your Work” button on the page you are working on, before going to another page!

F Award, F25 Award
F U

deadline May 31, 2010

Fabrica, the Benetton Group’s communication research center and Forma, Centro Internazionale di Fotografia (international photography center) launch the third edition of the F Award – international award for concerned photography.

The F Award aims to involve photographers from all over the world.

The F Award aims to award photography that documents and criticizes, that tells a story: dramas, struggles, abused rights, but also dignity; pain and consolation, desperation and hope; the loss of everything and the triumph of life’s new possibilities and lastly the things that people do to face all of this. In a word, life.

The F Award aims to promote photography as a means of transmitting information and creating awareness. Without photography what would we know of hunger in the world, of the likely outcome of every war, of the living conditions of “the other half” to quote the work of one of concerned photography’s pioneers?

The F Award is inspired by the following words, published in 1972 by Cornell Capa:
“They are concerned photographers. They take sides. They are people who wanted to show things that had to be corrected…wanted to show things that had to be appreciated”.
The Concerned Photographer, Editor Cornell Capa, Grossman 1972

What to do: photographers who would like to participate should propose a series of photographs by May 31st, 2010 that would be part of a wider project that the prize will help finance.

The jury is formed by international personalities and is chaired by Peter Galassi, Director of Photography at MOMA, New York.

The other jury members are:

Monica Allende, Director of Photography, The Sunday Times Magazine
Enrico Bossan, Director of Photography, Fabrica
Melissa Harris, Editor, Aperture
Roberto Koch, President, Forma
Paolo Pellegrin, Photographer Magnum Photos
Urs Stahel, Director of the Museum of Winterthur (Zurich)

The jury will award the most interesting project with a contribution of euro 20.000 and the possibility of publishing a book.

A special section, F25, for photographers under 25 will see the winner awarded with a one year scholarship in Fabrica’s photography area.
