The Bettye Lane Award for Feminist Photography

The Bettye Lane Award for Feminist Photography
Deadline: March 31

The Archive of Documentary Arts and the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History & Culture in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library are committed to acquiring and preserving materials that document the history of feminist activism.

To this end, the ADA & the Bingham Center are pleased to offer the Bettye Lane Award for Feminist Photography to acquire work by women who, through their photography, have documented feminist activism and/or efforts to improve conditions for women in society.

In 2017 a selected photographer will receive an honorarium of $6,000 to print a completed body of work between 40-50 images which will be acquired by the ADA & the Bingham Center and added to our collection. That body of work will be preserved at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University, and be available for use by students, faculty, and independent researchers. The ADA & Bingham Center also promote their collection material through exhibition and a variety of public programs.

Fees: Free
