Photographers make images. Visionaries teach you how to see. The Lucie Foundation is proud to support emerging talent with vision, with dynamic ideas that challenge and progress the art form of still photography into work that compels. Our support of photography is broad, from Fine Art to Documentary and Photojournalism, digital to film-based works. Our concern is to support emerging visionaries producing work that is at once gripping, and original.
The Lucie Foundation is proud to offer three cash grants to support the work of emerging photographers – one $2,500 scholarship with an open theme and two $1000 scholarships for photographers working in the fields of Fine Art or Documentary/Photojournalism.
The 2017 Emerging Scholarship will open for submissions in Spring 2017.
