Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation: 2019 Umrao Singh Sher-Gil Grant for Indian Photographers

Deadline: 15 January 2019

Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation is seeking applications for its 2019 Umrao Singh Sher-Gil Grant for Photography to recognize the need to enable Indian photographers to produce and share their work in their lifetime.

Established in 2015, the Umrao Singh Sher-Gil Grant for Photography will recognise a photographer’s commitment to the ‘staged’ or ‘constructed’ image. Documentary photography projects using the idiom of the staged or constructed image will also be considered.

There is a distinction, albeit a fine one, between the ‘staged’ and the ‘constructed’ image. Regardless, both genres reflect on the transformative nature of the photograph in their relationship to reality. The grant is intended to assist photographers who have started a project and need financial help to complete their work.

Grant Information

The Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation has pledged an annual photography grant of INR 5,00,000 in Umrao Singh Sher-Gil’s name to encourage independent voices in photography.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The grant is for Indian nationals who reside in India.
  • There is no age limit for applicants to the grant.
  • Individual photographers and collaborative projects can apply.
  • The grant is for a photographer already working on a project. Therefore, the application must include photographic prints from the project for which financial support is needed.
  • Applicants must not hold any other fellowship/grant for the proposed project when applying.
  • Applicants must confirm in writing the proposed project has not been exhibited in any commercial gallery or by a commercial gallery in India or abroad. Projects which have been exhibited will not be considered.
