Jacob Johnson Memorial Grants

Jacob Johnson Memorial Grants
Deadline: December 15

Jacob Johnson Memorial Grants encourage photographers to create narratives of people, places or moments that are meaningful in their lives. A panel of photographers and artists will judge entries on their merit (emotional resonance and photographic excellence) and need for funding (How can this money can help, and how far will it go?).

GRANT 1: $2,500 TO A CHICAGO PHOTOGRAPHER
To honor the city that helped shaped Jacob Johnson as an artist, one grant will be awarded to a Chicago-based photographer. The local photographer will also be invited to attend Jacob Johnson’s Memorial art show on January 22, 2018.

GRANT 2: $2,500 TO AN UNHEARD VOICE
To honor those often excluded from mainstream media due to their race, gender or social philosophy, one grant will be given to a photographer producing work that gives voice to the
underrepresented.

GRANT 3: $2,500 TO A PORTRAIT SERIES
In honor of our relationship, in which we photographed one another without hesitation, one grant will be awarded to a photographer working on a portrait series.

Fees: FREE
