Call for Entries: 2016 Light Work Grants in Photography

Light Work is pleased to announce the 2016 Light Work Grants in Photography competition. Three $3,000 grants will be awarded to photographers who reside within an approximate 50-mile radius of Syracuse. The recipients of these grants are invited to display their work in a special exhibition at Light Work, and their work will also be reproduced in Light Work's award-winning publication, Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual.

In its 40-year history, Light Work Grants have supported more than 110 artists, some multiple times. With the help of the regional grant, many artists have been able to continue long-term projects, purchase equipment, frame photographs for exhibitions, promote their work, collaborate with others, or otherwise continue their artist goals.

All applicants must reside in of one of the following Central New York counties: Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Oswego, Schuyler, Seneca, St. Lawrence, Tioga, or Tompkins.

Three judges from outside the grant region will review the applications. Their decisions are based solely on the strength of the candidate's portfolio and completed application. Individuals who received this award in 2011 or earlier are eligible to re-apply. Full-time students are not eligible.

The deadline for the 2016 Light Work Grants is April 1, 2016. Apply today.
