Spring 2008 Grant for Emerging Photographers
Humble Arts Foundation established the Grant for Emerging Photographers (GEP) in 2007 to support fine art photography projects in the U.S. and abroad. Given twice annually, the GEP is a $1,000 grant award that recognizes the strongest new proposal in fine art photography as submitted to Humble Arts Foundation.

Deadline: 11:59 pm, Monday, March 3, 2008

For questions, please send an e-mail to: or visit the Humble site.
Of course, by narrowing the definition of emerging artists to age you are reinforcing the idea that the young have a patent on artistic efflorescence and economic need. This can be especially thorny when you are talking about women as we take the age thing a little more personally. We cougars in the photography biz can be just as innovative, just as emerging and just as in need of an institutional boost as the kittens. Think about all the talented women who wouldn't qualify for this opportunity.
