Our mission: The Grant aims to support personal photography projects and encourage the production and development of photography outside of the commercial realm. The Grant recognizes photographers as seen by their images, story, dedication and commitment of the photographer to the story or concept. Additionally, we consider the extent that he or she is willing to go to bring about positive change in society.
About The Grant:
The Grant is open for submissions to photographers self-publishing on fotovisura.com, a platform created to provide resources for photographers worldwide, including an online presence and the option to become part of a public archive created for editors to find new work. New members are welcome to submit.
The Grant is divided into two categories:
• The FotoVisura Grant for Outstanding Personal Project
