The Photocrati Fund

The 2010 Photocrati Fund competition is now open. Deadline for application submissions is March 15, 2010 (by 11pm GMT).

What is the Photocrati Fund?

The Photocrati Fund offers $5000 grants to non-professional photographers to undertake important humanitarian and environmental photography projects. Our goal is to identify outstanding, up-and-coming photographers and give them the resources necessary to pursue projects that will have a tangible and positive effect on the world.

We will offer one grant in 2010. The application deadline is March 15, 2010, and the award will be announced in June 2010. Awardees become Photocrati Fellows for the calendar year from the announcement of their award until the announcement of the following year’s award.

Award decisions will be made by the Photocrati Fund Board, a prestigious panel that includes some of the world’s best-known environmental and cultural photographers. The Photocrati Fund Board and judges for the competition are:

Steve McCurry
Michael “Nick” Nichols
Art Wolfe

Note: The Photocrati Fund and Photocrati.com are administered by Frontier Digital Media, LLC. Photocrati and the Photocrati Fund are sometimes hereinafter referred to collectively as Photocrati.

FiftyCrows Gallery

The current exhibition at FiftyCrows called, A Climate for Life, comes from the International League of Documentary Photographers. This group of some of the most profound nature photographers in the world has put together a campaign of images and writing on the environment in order to inform, educate, and provide answers on what can be done to rescue our destroyed world. In the FiftyCrows Gallery, along with the 30 large scale, brightly colored, stretched canvas prints, are accompanying informational text posters about the state of the environment, the problems that we face, and the solutions that can create change. We have books for sale for $50 if you want to take the images and information home with you.

The gallery will be open until 7:30pm, TONIGHT, Thursday February 4.

Regular gallery hours are: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 11am – 6pm
