MJR Film Grant ~ Call for submissions


So we want to try something new. Something more hands-on… We want to remain connected with the our community and provide support in the best way we know how.

The MJR Film Grant is our effort to try and put those sentiments into practice.

We want to help you realize your project and we understand the level of commitment it takes to keep pushing the analogue medium. So, in addition to supplying $500 worth of film, we want to start a conversation. This is where the information/drinks evening, portfolio reviews and the winner’s event come into play – it’s all an opportunity for us to get to know you and for you to get to know the wider photographic community.

Shooting film takes commitment – a commitment we at MJR understand and appreciate. That is why we want to help you realize your project. Not another faceless competition where JPGs fly through the air and winners are announced in helvetica, MJR is actually proposing that we meet. Connect and converse.


+ A proposal outlining the work to be undertaken or continued with the grant, saved as a PDF. Please include a short bio and personal statement.

+ 7 to 12 images, analogue capture only, that either support the proposal or showcase your work to the best of your ability. This may be a collection of single images or a more formal collection.

+ Files must be 1200 pixels on the longest side @ 72dpi.
+ Deadline for the competition is June 1, 2010
+ Please email submissions to ling@wearemjr.com

Please title your images: Surname_First name_sequence number.jpg Please title your proposal: Surname_First name_proposal.pdf Please title your artist statement: Surname_First name _statement.pdf
