2015 CALL FOR DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY ENTRIES
Follow in the footsteps of our 2014 Grant Laureate Mohammed Ali Eddin of Cairo, Egypt. Documentary photographers from around the world are invited to submit documentary photography projects along with an 15-image supporting portfolio on topics of human suffering and unrest, forgotten communities, exploited lands and people, on communities ravaged by war, poverty, famine, disease, and the exploitation of global resources.
The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for Documentary Photography & Film will award one $5,000 USD grant to one documentary photography project based on the quality of the submitted 15-image portfolio, the strength of the submitted proposal, as well as any supporting materials including an updated CV. The “Top 12″ shortlisted portfolios will be featured and displayed during Les Rencontres d’Arles (Arles, France) at our new 18th century facility and foundation home located on 19/21 Rue de la Liberté/14 Rue Barrême. The selected project must be completed the calendar year following receipt of the grant. Grants are open to professional and emerging photographers in all countries. Photographers are expected to be committed to the field of reportage and documentary photography.
