The Southern Exposure Grant

Documenting the people, culture and landscape of the American Southeast

Sponsored by the Abraham J. & Phyllis Katz Foundation in Atlanta, this grant of $2,500 is awarded twice per year for photography projects that capture and convey the spirit of the people, places and landscape of the American Southeast.

This grant may be used to complete a body of work, publish a monograph, or book or portfolio. It may also be used to support travel to a specific location for a defined purpose.

What the judges will be evaluating is maturity of the photographer's work submitted as examples, clarity of vision, and specificity of intent. 

Most important in the judges consideration will be that the applicant is pursuing the development of a body of work, or a new approach to an existing project that will produce images of substance and with a unique vision.

Please note that the funded project must be completed within 12 months of the awards granting. We expect to receive a full report from you on how you have used the funds and also on the final results of your project.

All projects will be featured in an annual book of Award Winners to be published by our supporting partner Lenswork  Publishing.

Readers may discuss grant applications on our Facebook page.
