APA DC | LGBTQIAP+ Photography Grant

Submissions Open June 1st!

Fri 31st May, 2024

APA | DC is pleased to present the annual LGBTQIAP+ Photography Grant for emerging and established photographers who self-identify as LGBTQIAP+. This grant seeks to provide a much-needed financial contribution to photographers struggling to secure funding to complete their projects.

Our goal is to celebrate the LGBTQIAP+ experience through photography. We hope to champion storytellers and bring visibility to the LGBTQIAP+ community’s national platform and cultivate a safe space for funding, recognition, and representation in our professional photographic community. The APA | DC LGBTQIAP+ Photography Grant is open to photographers residing within the United States and its territories and can support new or in-progress projects. It will be awarded based on the strength of visual portfolios and submitted artist statements.

Submissions for documentary, narrative, experimental, or episodic projects representing LGBTQIAP+ people and their communities are encouraged. This grant is intended to support camera-based photography projects, and not those produced solely through the use of AI.

We encourage applications by people of color, transgender people, intersex people, asexual people, non-binary people, disabled people, women, and other underrepresented people and communities within the queer (or LGBTQIAP+) community.
