1 | Submission guidelines:
• 6 to 50 images at 72 dpi (JPGs - sRGB/ RGB)
• 1300 pixels on the longest size.
• A short artist statement.
• A short biography.
• A breakdown of how you will spend the grant.

2 | Brief FAQ:

  • Are multiple entries allowed? Yes, you are allowed to submit more than one entry, as long as the images are from different bodies of work. 
  • What type of work? Any genre. Documentary/ portraiture/ conceptual/ landscapes etc.
  • Can I submit fewer than 6 images? That wouldn't be possible. Minimum images requirement is 6.
  • Even if I submit into the Best Color or B&W Picture? That's correct, minimum images requirement is 6 for any category.
  • Why do you charge? Unfortunately, running a contest for a grant like this one comes with substantial costs - from the interface submittable.com fees,  to web hosting/ web developing & graphic design costs, to the  time-consuming selection process (which can take months), marketing and  advertising expenses, etc. Therefore we have been forced to apply a  small submission fee this year in order to counterbalance all of these  costs. 
  • I started this 'ongoing' project long time ago, can I still submit it? Yes, it does not matter when you started this work.
  • Is it possible to edit submissions? Editing submissions will be possible upon request from the 5th of October up until the 4th November 2019. In order to be able to edit your submission you do need to buy the extra add-on. Please note that it will not be possible to edit submissions after the 04th November 2019.
