Heads up, we've raised the fund to two individual $5,000 grants.
Hey, environmental and humanitarian photographers, looking for a great grant opportunity? The 2019 Imagely Fund is officially open!
Imagely is excited to launch our 7th annual Imagely Fund which offers $5,000 to one environmental and one humanitarian photographer to use toward an interesting and meaningful project. That's $10,000 in photography grants!
Grant season offers our team an incredible chance to check out the amazing work of photographers around the globe. Each year we are inspired by, and learn from these photo stories. Whether it’s documenting wars or natural disasters, spotlighting injustices and inequalities, or highlighting issues in conservation, we feel incredibly honored to witness the impact that powerful imagery has to evoke positive change.
Interested in applying to be 2019’s Imagely Fund Fellow? You’ll need an online portfolio showing off your photo storytelling talents and a one-page personal statement (it will include a link to your portfolio, a short bio, a brief project description, an estimated budget, and info on any location-specific training, preparations, and partnerships).
Applications are judged by our panel of distinguished reviewers which in 2019 include: Jim Brandenburg, Steve Winter, and Ami Vitale. The Imagely Team is immensely grateful to all of our judges (present and past) for their commitment to giving back to the photography community despite their busy schedules with projects, books, travel, and teaching.
