Howard Chapnick Grant (for the Advancement of Photojournalism)
In 1996 the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund announced a new award, the Howard Chapnick Grant, to encourage and support leadership in fields ancillary to photojournalism, such as editing research, education and management. The Grant was established to honor the memory of Howard Chapnick, and acknowledge the value of his enormous contribution to photography.
The annual $5,000 grant may be used 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. According to the Fund’s Board of Trustees, special consideration will be given to initiatives, organizations or projects that promote social change and/or serve significant concerns of photojournalism. The grant is not intended to be used for the creation or production of photographs, which will continue to be funded by the main grant of the Smith Fund.
Deadline: April 30, 2020.
