Aaron Siskind Foundation Invites Applications for 2015 Individual Photographer’s Fellowships

The Aaron Siskind Foundation is accepting applications for its 2015 Individual Photographer’s Fellowships program. The annual program encourages and celebrates artistic achievement in contemporary photography by supporting the creative endeavors of artists working in photography and photo-based art media. A limited number of fellowship grants of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to artists working in photography and photo-based art. Qualified applicants must provide a portfolio of still photography of any subject matter, genre, or process. Works submitted may be traditional photography projects or experimental works, but photographic techniques must be pivotal to the works submitted. Film, video, and interactive multimedia are ineligible. 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. Fellowship funds must be used to further the artist’s creative endeavors. Application Deadline: May 29, 2015.
