2018-2019 Robert Giard Fellowship: Call for Applications

giard-portrait

An annual award named for Robert Giard, a portrait, landscape, and figure photographer whose work often focused on LGBTQ lives and issues, this award is presented to an emerging, early or mid-career artist, from any country, working in photography, photo-based media, video, or moving image, including short-form film or video. The award now alternates annually between artists working exclusively with still images (photography) and those working with moving images (video or film).  Please make sure to check which medium (still vs. moving image) is eligible for this year’s award cycle, described below*. In either case, this award will support a directed project, one that is new or continuing, that addresses issues of sexuality, gender, or LGBTQ identity.

University affiliation is not necessary. If you are not sure whether you will be eligible for the award, we recommend that you contact us well before the deadline so we can make a determination; otherwise, you may be declared ineligible after the deadline and your application will not be submitted to the committee. This award is adjudicated by the fellowships committee of CLAGS and a jury of the Robert Giard Foundation.

The 2018-2019 Robert Giard Fellowship will be awarded in Still Photography

Award: $7,500
