THE ALEXIA 2024 STUDENT GRANT SUBMISSIONS

DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL 11:59 P.M. EST FEBRUARY 19, 2024.

The Alexia promotes the power of visual storytelling to shed light on significant issues around the world by supporting both student and professional photographers, filmmakers and other visual creatives whose work fosters cultural understanding and inspires change by addressing socially significant topics. Over 30 years, through its annual competitions, The Alexia has provided more than $1.7 million in grants to 170+ student and professional photographers. Grants are awarded to applicants who can produce significant projects that share in The Alexia’s mission and who demonstrate the ability to accomplish their projects. 

Student applicants are encouraged to consider proposing projects located close to where they live because a successful body of work is more likely with easy and repeated access. Most student grant recipients are already working on their projects when they apply.

This year, we are offering two new opportunities in addition to the main $1,000 grant. If your project aligns with one of the new initiatives, it will automatically be considered. SUBMIT ONLY ONE APPLICATION.

NEW: The Alexia Conservation Grant sponsored by The fStop Foundation — $1,000. We are looking for a strong project that focuses on positive aspects of conservation work in relation to human-wildlife conflict and how we can thrive alongside the wildlife that share our landscape. The fStop Foundation also is willing to provide guidance during production and publication.

NEW: Exhibitions. All images will be considered for inclusion in exhibits and publications curated throughout the year. Photographers with selected images will be contacted for approval.

The 2024 submission cycle will end at 11:59 p.m. February 15, 2024. Feel free to join us for the open judging weekend (sponsored by SONY) on March 29–30 at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

The Alexia encourages a diversity of creators, issues and approaches, and we look forward to reviewing your proposals.
Deadline: February 19, 2024
