Competitions and Grants

I see photography competitions as an unfortunately nessecary evil. Certain sections of the photography industry that see photographers as cash cows, a tendency which is evident in those competitions which charge large amounts for participation, often with little accountability about their internal processes of what that money is used for. In response to this concern I have compiled this list of competitions, grants, fellowships and residencies which either don’t charge for entry, offer fee waiver programs, or charge relatively little. I try to keep it updated when I have time (which is rare) but it also depends heavily on public suggestions for additions and corrects.
