Project Grants for Women & Nonbinary Photographers

Deadline Date: May 15, 2024

Donor Name: Women Photograph

Grant Size: $1000 to $10,000

Women Photograph is excited to announce the 2024 project grants for women & nonbinary photographers.

Thanks to generous support from MPB, these $5,000 grants will support photography projects either new or in-progress from visual journalists working in a documentary capacity. Five grants are available, at least one of which will be earmarked for a nonbinary or transgender photographer.

Funding may be used to cover the hard costs of reporting, photographers’ creative fees, and any other expenses that support the production of new work. This grant is not meant to support the production of books, exhibitions, workshops, or other secondary materials. 

Applicants are encouraged to submit a story, rather than singles, as part of the grant application. The images need not be related to the project proposal (but please specify in your application if the images are unrelated to your proposal).

Eligibility Criteria

  • These grants are open to women, nonbinary, transgender, and intersex documentary photographers of any nationality. Central to Women Photograph’s mission is to be inclusive of and support work from photographers who represent a diverse range of identities, geographies, and experiences. You do not need to be a member of Women Photograph to apply.
  • There is no fee to apply.
  • Only one submission per open call is permitted.
  • Applications must be submitted in English, but they welcome applications translated using services like Google Translate.
  • There are no restrictions on camera equipment used for either grant.
  • Grantees will retain full ownership of all work completed.
  • Women Photograph and MPB will ask for the use of promotional images to be used explicitly in conjunction with promoting the photographer, the work, and the grants.
