Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation Announces Second Annual Call for Social Documentary Photography
Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for International Photography

 

Deadline: 05-31-2012

 

The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for International Photography is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization committed to fostering positive social discourse in underrepresented communities throughout the world by encouraging emerging and established photographers working in developing nations to keep their lenses fixed on the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. Headquartered in New York, with a presence in Paris and Zurich, the foundation serves the international photographic community through exhibitions, publishing, grants, education, and other curatorial projects.

 

For the second year, the foundation has announced that it is seeking entries of outstanding work in social documentary photo reportage.

 

Photographers around the world are encouraged to submit entries focusing on lives and populations ravaged by war, famine, poverty, religious persecution, political oppression, forced migration, and other social injustices. The winning submission will be awarded a grant of $5,000 to be utilized for the production or completion of a social documentary project.

 

Photographers of all nationalities who are at least 18 years of age are encouraged to apply.

 

Submission details, entry rules, and information on last year’s grant recipient are available at the foundation Web site.
