The Imagely Fund offers annual grants for significant humanitarian and environmental photography projects. Judged by a distinguished panel of independent photographers, the 2019 competition will offer two grants, one for each category of Humanitarian-focused and Environment-focused projects.
This grant is open to both professional and emerging photographers from any country, worldwide. Applicants must be over 21 years of age and should have a proven ability to produce outstanding imagery and coherent photo essays, as well as the background necessary to carry out the proposed project. This means that for photographers planning to complete a project in a country other than their own country of origin, there should be a clear demonstration of preparation for work in that country (i.e. proper visas, contacts, language training, etc.), and preferably some experience in the country or a good deal of experience and understanding of the culture and language/customs.
