Posted by on March 3, 2017 | Contests/Events

Each year, the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund recognizes an outstanding humanistic photographer and awards him or her with a grant for a proposed project. This year, the memorial fund has announced an increase from $30,000 to $35,000 for the selected photographer, in addition to $5,000 each for one or more finalists.

Past recipients of the grant include Matt Black, Robin Hammond, Eli Reed, and last year’s honoree, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, whose work you can see below.

The Smith Grant is a singular opportunity to fund your work and propel your documentary career. Read more at smithfund.org/eugene-smith-grant.
