W. Eugene Smith Grants

If you plan on applying for one of the W. Eugene Smith Grants, please keep in mind that the deadline is May 30th. Besides the five primary $10,000 grants and the $5000 Student grant, the Chapnick Grant for $10,000 can be used for a much wider scope of activities that do not involve image making, but can be applied to editing, research, education, and other initiatives.

Since 1979 the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund has worked to seek out independent voices who work and create in the vein of W. Eugene Smith's legacy. Our 2021 Grant deadline is 10 days away and we urge our community to apply to have a chance to be considered for one of our three grants:

  • The W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography will award five photographers $10,000 whose work follow the tradition of compassionate photojournalism exhibited by W. Eugene Smith during his 45-year career. 
  • The Howard Chapnick Grant will award one photographer $10,000 to use to finance any of a range of qualified undertakings, which might include a program of further education, research, a special long-term sabbatical project, or an internship to work with a noteworthy group or individual. Special consideration will be given to individuals, initiatives, organizations or projects that promote social change and or serve significant concerns of photojournalism and documentary photography. 
  • The W. Eugene Smith Grant for Student Photographers will award $5,000 to one student photographer to carry out or complete a photographic essay.

The hard submission deadline for all three grants is May 30, 2021, 11:59 pm EST. Find out the requirements and apply today.
