To give voice to those who go unheard, foster cultural understanding and expose social injustice
The goal of The Alexia Foundation Grants is to give voice to those who go unheard, foster cultural understanding and expose social injustice. The strength of the proposal will be judged equally to photographic skills. Learn tips for a winning proposal from last year’s judge, Sarah Leen, Director of Photography at National Geographic magazine.
The Professional Grant winner will receive $20,000 to help produce his or her proposed project. The Student Winner will receive funding for a semester at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, a $1,000 cash grant to help produce the proposed body of work, and $500 will be awarded to that student’s academic department. A student award will also be given to the Second Place Winner. The judges will determine the number of Award of Excellence Winners there will be.
The grants go to those who clearly and concisely propose significant projects that share in the Foundation’s mission and who also submit photographic or motion materials that reflect the ability to execute the proposed project.
There is a $50 application fee for the Professional Grant. There is no application fee for the Student Grant.
