The Viewbook Visual Storytelling Grant supports photographers who explore the varied possibilities of visual storytelling and pursue creative ways of bringing their work to a wider public. The grant is part of a wider ‘Transformations’ program, in which Viewbook explores changes in photography in today’s digitally connected world. The goal is to support thoughtful photography/visual storytelling projects that make us reflect on our world, our ethics, beliefs and behavior, and which produce and share meaningful photo stories in inventive ways.
Viewbook is looking to give a cash grant of up to $5000 to a photographer, group of photographers or visual artists to cover a maximum of 50% of their project costs. You can propose a project of any size or form and the project can be in any stage. What kind of project is Viewbook looking to support? To quote them:
- “In-depth, thoughtful visual stories.
- Photography projects that demonstrate innovative ideas and novel ways of publishing and sharing photography.
- Involvement with a community, wider participation, or a network effect.
- Local photographers who are looking to gain visibility for their projects on a global stage.
- Projects that focus on, or have a direct relationship with, the theme ‘transformations in photography’.”
