Deadline: 7 February 2023. We are thrilled to announce the Vital Impacts Environmental Photography Grants. The two $20,000 grants will support the development of a documentary project on the work of an environmental story over the course of twelve months.
The purpose of our grants is to support and encourage visual storytellers to create a long-term documentary photography project with local communities who are working to protect the environment and wildlife.
Vital Impacts will be awarding two $20,000(US) grants to support the development of a documentary project on the work of an environmental story over the course of twelve months. The grants are for two separate photographers working on two separate projects. The grants will fund visual stories that highlight solution based environmental initiatives. It is designed to give the recipients time, mentoring and intellectual freedom to produce a body of work over twelve months.
