General Information and Eligibility Requirements

The Aaron Siskind Foundation is offering a limited number of Individual
Photographer’s Fellowship grants of up to $10,000 each, for artists working
in photography and photo-based art. Recipients will be determined by a
panel of distinguished guest judges on the basis of artistic excellence,
accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement in the medium
in its widest sense. The Foundation seeks to support artists/photographers
who demonstrate a serious commitment to the field, who are professionally
active or employed in the field. The entry fee for this grant is $15USD.

Applications must be submitted through the Slideroom application portal at
www.slideroom.com

Who May Apply: U.S. Citizens and Legal Permanent Residents of the United
States, who reside in the U.S., and who are at least 21 years of age.
Recipients must provide legal proof of eligibility and a verifiable social
security number.

Who May Not Apply: Students enrolled in a college degree program. Please
note: students who will graduate before the 2015 application deadline are
eligible to apply. Previous IPF recipients are not currently being
considered for new awards. At this time, artists on temporary visas such as
the F-1 or O-1 visa are not eligible to apply.

Eligible Work: Still photography regardless of subject matter, genre, or
process. Works submitted may be traditional photography projects or
experimental works, but photographic techniques must be pivotal to the
works submitted. The submission should consist of a mature, coherent body
of work.

Examples of Non-Eligible Work: Film, video, interactive multimedia

Fellowship recipients will be notified by September 2015. Names of
recipients and panelists will be announced shortly thereafter. The
decisions of the Aaron Siskind Foundation and its designated judging panel
as to who receives fellowship support will be final, private, and without
appeal. As required by law, award funds must be used to further the
artist’s creative endeavors. Recipients will be asked to provide a summary
of the uses to which award funds are put. Award funds will be taxable to
recipients in Tax Year 2015.
