Get Money & Attention: Where to Enter Your Work

If your New Year’s resolution was to get some recognition for your work, here are three cool places to submit….

• The George Soros-backed Open Society Foundations has put out the call for the next Moving Walls exhibit. Open to established and emerging photographers, they are looking for work in 13 specific human rights and social justice categories, including the economic downturn in the US and mainstream media depictions of African American men and boys. Winners will be displayed in New York and Washington, DC, and the deadline is April 1. For more info on how to apply, go here.

•  The Pulitzer Center is looking for proposals on what they call “under-reported population issues.” The Center will be awarding grants for international travel in the range of $2,000 to $10,000, and even up to $20,000 depending on the project. Grants are available to journalists of all stripes and nationalities, including photographers. The deadline is rolling. See here for info on how to apply.

•  Slideluck Potshow is a quirky nonprofit that combines art and food. Based in New York City but operating in 40 cities in the US and abroad, the idea is that artists submit multi-media project (up to 5 minutes worth of images) and people bring home-cooked food and gather to watch the chosen slideshows. You might find yourself alongside world-renowned artists and unknowns alike. Find out about submissions here.
