Apply for Women in Photography (WIPNYC) Grant & Mentor Program!

Deadline: 30 May 2017

Women in Photography has announced a grant program entitled “The Women in Photography (WIPNYC) Grant & Mentor Program” that will provide one female photographer with a $5000 grant to produce work and a year of mentorship with four art professionals.

Launched in June 2008, Women in Photography is an innovative website founded by artists Amy Elkins and Cara Phillips that showcases the work of women artists. The internet-based project focuses on exhibiting work outside of the traditional model of the commercial art world, allowing it to reach a global audience and to provide opportunities at no cost. Mixing emerging photographers, mid-career and established artists, the site’s curatorial focus is to feature the diversity of work being made by women artists. Women in Photography has collaborated with many independent women curators, Aperture Foundation, LACMA, MoCP, Lesile Tonkonow, Lightwork, P.P.O.W Gallery and Humble Arts Foundation.

In 2009 the site launched its grant program. With the generous support of LTI/Lightside Photographic and Kodak, Women in Photography has given 12-thousand dollars in funds and materials to support women artists.

Funding Information

Each mentor will be available for 6 hours over the course of one year (for a total of 24 hours.)
