The 2012 Photocrati Fund Competition

What is the Photocrati Fund?
The Photocrati Fund offers $5000 grants to photographers to undertake important humanitarian and environmental photography projects. Our goal is to identify outstanding photographers and to provide the resources necessary to pursue projects that will have a tangible and positive effect on the world.
The 2012 Photocrati Fund competition is open from January 2012 through April 1, 2012. The 2012 Photocrati
Fund award will be announced at the Look3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia in June 2012. The grant winner will become a Photocrati Fellow for the calendar year from the announcement of his/her 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. We are still confirming 2012 judges.
The 2011 Photocrati Fund Board and judges for the competition included:

Steve McCurry
Michael “Nick” Nichols
Jim Brandenburg

Please review the guidelines below to learn about the requirements for the 2012 Photocrati Fund. Projects that do not meet requirements will not be eligible for consideration of the award. We look forward to receiving your application. Thanks for your interest in the 2012 Photocrati Fund.


This grant is intended for both pro and emerging photographers. The grant is open to photographers over 21 years of age from any country worldwide, but applicants should have a proven ability to produce outstanding imagery and coherent photo essays, as well as the background necessary to carry out the proposed project. This means that for photographers planning to complete a project in a country other than their own country of origin, there should be a clear demonstration of preparation for work in that country (i.e. proper visas, contacts, language training, etc.).
