Open Society Foundations seek photography projects on migration – Worldwide

Photographers and media makers can submit their work for consideration.

The Open Society Foundations are soliciting proposals for the Documentary Photography Project’s Moving Walls 25: exhibition and fellowship. The project is accepting photo-based, documentary projects that address migration issues.

The program is interested in showcasing the work of photographers and artists who expand the visual language of documentary photography, including those who use new or creative visual strategies, investigative/storytelling approaches or technologies.

The exhibition will launch on Sept. 27 in New York. The foundations will cover participants’ travel and accommodation costs to attend the exhibition’s opening reception and related events.

Selected photographers will also receive a fellowship of US$30,000 to US$$60,000 to support ongoing or future work on the theme of migration.

Special consideration will be given to work that comes from the perspective of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers themselves, or is made through sustained and meaningful collaboration with these communities. Up to seven projects will be selected.

The submission deadline is April 20.
