This grant was created to encourage the betterment of humanity through the presentation of editorially-based imagery representing humanistic themes including human unrest, famine, disease, national and international politics, war, uprisings, injustice and triumph. As well, this grant was set up to lend credence to the photographers themselves who give so much of their time, energy, enthusiasm, money, and, at times, their lives to create images that bear witness and are sometimes shockingly brutal.

This category is for non-fiction humanistic photographic work only. Images of objects, fashion, fauna or flora will not be considered. Proposals and work submitted for this grant must be of human interest, resonating globally due in no small part to its potential impact on humanity. The best submissions will cover cultural, artistic, historical, economic,
scientific, or other subjects inherent to human activity and survival. The emphasis must always remain on fact, not fiction.


  • Grant in “Two Equal Installments” of $2,500 USD each

Submitted images must have been completed no earlier than 1.5 years (18 months) prior to the initial date for the call for entries of that calendar year.

Submit by email a 15-image Portfolio in single PDF file plus your CV, a grant request and your own photo. The PDF file must be under 10 Mb in size.
