I’m proud to write that One, One Thousand is well into its third month featuring photography online. We’ve already had the privilege of bringing some really outstanding work to our readers (most recently, photographs by David Simonton and Joshua Greer), and we’re not going to be stopping anytime soon.
When we conceived of One, One Thousand, we wanted it to function in two primary ways:
1. As an excellent place to look at photographs made in the South.
2. As a truly useful resource for all photographers.
In the spirit of that second goal, we’re going to periodically collect information about grants, exhibitions, residencies, and open calls that might interest you. This time we’ve got details about a grant for Gulf Coasters (not this kind) and both an exhibition and residency opportunity in Woodstock, New York:
The Michael P. Smith Fund For Documentary Photography
What you get: $5000
Who can apply: Photographers residing in the Gulf Coast states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida
It’s gonna set you back: Application fee: $25 + NOPA membership: $60.
Who’s gonna see your work: Tom Rankin, the Director of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, will be the finalistsâ€™ juror. The preliminary panel that will select the finalists includes Stella Kramer, independent editor, editor of Fraction J; Gina Martin, Photographer Representative, National Geographic Image Collection; and Kevin Miller, Director of the Southeast Museum of Photography.
When’s the deadline: February 28, 2011
