Announcing The Alexia 2017 Grant Judging

The Alexia Foundation would like to invite you to join us for the judging of The Alexia grants 2017 on Mar. 24 and 25 at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. The Alexia competition is unique in that the proposal is given equal weight to the images. What one is planning to do is as important as what one has shown him or herself able to do with imagery.

The Alexia 2017 judges are National Geographic’s Keith Jenkins, Photographer and Filmmaker Ed Kashi, and Photography Director and Curator Ami Periera. The judging will be moderated by Syracuse University’s Alexia Tsairis Chair of Documentary Photography Mike Davis.

We hope you will be able to join us for what is always a compelling weekend of discussions about documentary photography and using images to drive change.
