The Open Society Institute is offering a grant to photographers, professional and emerging, to document human rights and social justice issues for their 2015 Moving Walls exhibit in NYC.

From their website:



We are particularly interested in work that provides a fresh perspective and expands the visual language of documentary photography. Therefore, we invite photographers and artists to submit documentary-based work that uses new or creative visual strategies, investigative/storytelling approaches, or technologies. We seek applicants who reflect a diversity of global perspectives, especially those that are under-represented in mainstream narratives and media. Five to six projects will be selected.

We will cover the cost of: printing/framing; $2,500 participation fee; travel cost reimbursement/coverage to attend the opening reception and related events (attendance required); and return shipment of photographs.

Deadline is November 18th at 5pm EST. Apply for the grant here.
