Call for Entries: 2016 Alexia Professional Grant

The Alexia Foundation is pleased to announce its call for entries for its 2016 Grants. The deadline for submissions for the Professional Grant is Jan. 31, 2016 at 2 p.m. The Student Grant application will open Feb. 3, 2016. The student deadline is March 3, 2016 at 2 p.m.

The Professional Grant Winner will receive $20,000 to help produce his or her proposed project. The goal of The Alexia Foundation Grants is to give voice to those who go unheard, foster cultural understanding and expose social injustice. The strength of the proposal will be judged equally to photographic skills.

The grants go to those who clearly and concisely propose significant projects that share in the Foundation’s mission and who also submit photographic or motion materials that reflect the ability to execute the proposed project.
