39th Annual Light Work Grants in Photography Call for Entries: Deadline April 30
Light Work is pleased to announce the 39th Annual Light Work Grants in Photography competition. Light Work began offering grants to CNY artists in 1975 to encourage the production of new photographic work in the region. Three $2,000 grants will be awarded to photographers, critics or photo-historians who reside within an approximate 50-mile radius of Syracuse, N.Y. The recipients of these grants are invited to display their work in a special exhibition at the Light Work Gallery, and their work will also be reproduced in Light Work’s award-winning publication, Contact Sheet.
In its 38-year history, the grant program has supported more than 110 artists, some multiple times. With the help of the regional grant, many artists have been able to continue long term projects, purchase equipment, frame photographs for exhibitions, promote their work, collaborate with others or otherwise continue their artist goals. Light Work is a nonprofit, artist-run photography organization and imaging center located in Syracuse. The organization is dedicated to helping artists who work in photography and related media, and supports artists from all over the world through its exhibitions, publications, and artist-in-residence program.
Please note: All applicants must reside in of one of the following Central New York counties: Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Schuyler, Seneca, St. Lawrence, Tioga or Tompkins.
Three judges from outside the grant region will review the applications. Their decisions are based solely on the strength of the candidate’s portfolio and completed application. Individuals who received this award in 2008 or earlier are eligible to reapply. Full-time students are not eligible.
