General Information and Eligibility Requirements

The Aaron Siskind Foundation is offering a limited number of Individual Photographer's Fellowship grants of up to $10,000 each, for artists working in photography and photo-based art. Recipients will be determined by a panel of distinguished guest judges on the basis of artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium in its widest sense. The Foundation seeks to support artists/photographers who demonstrate a serious commitment to the field, who are professionally active or employed in the field. The entry fee for this grant is $25USD.

Applications must be submitted through the Slideroom application portal at www.slideroom.com

Eligibility: Applicants must be at least 21 years of age. Students enrolled in a college degree program are not eligible to apply. Please note: students who will graduate before the 2018 application deadline are eligible to apply. Previous IPF recipients are not currently being considered for new awards.

Eligible Work: Still photography regardless of subject matter, genre, or process. The use of the lens must be pivotal. The submission should consist of a mature, coherent body of work.

Fellowship recipients will be notified after the application review process is complete. Names of recipients and panelists will be announced shortly thereafter. The decisions of the Aaron Siskind Foundation and its designated judging panel as to who receives fellowship support will be final, private, and without appeal. As required by law, award funds must be used to further the artist's creative endeavors. Recipients will be asked to provide a summary of the uses to which award funds are put. Award funds will be taxable to recipients in Tax Year 2018.
