Convocatoria para fotógrafos con proyectos que documenten temas de derechos humanos y justicia social - Open Society Foundations


Audience Engagement Grant: Grant Awards to Individuals
The Open Society Documentary Photography Project is soliciting calls for the 2014 Audience Engagement Grant Program. Since the program’s inception in 2004, we have funded 54 photographers who have gone beyond documenting a human rights or social justice issue to enacting change.
Beginning this year, we will offer two tracks of support for individuals at different phases of their Audience Engagement projects.

Track One: Project Development

Grantees will receive funding to attend an Open Society–organized retreat in December of 2014. This event will be designed in collaboration with Creative Capital’s Professional Development Program, whose nationally recognized workshops provide participants with essential practical tools and strategies to help them move their project and career goals forward. Attendees will become part of a larger Audience Engagement Grant cohort, with opportunities to connect both during the conference and after.

Track Two: Project Implementation

Grantees will receive funding to execute (or continue executing) their projects as well as attend December’s retreat.
Eligibility Criteria
  • Documentary photographers, photo-based artists, and socially engaged practitioners who use their work to move target audiences beyond the act of looking, to directly participate in activities or processes that lead to change around an issue.
  • Individuals who establish meaningful partnerships with others committed to realizing change and who bring a complementary set of skills and expertise.
  • Projects that use photography or photo-based art creatively and innovatively to reach a project’s unique audience.
  • Projects with goals that are ambitious, yet realistic and achievable.

Quota Scheme

The Norwegian government provides students from developing countries in the South and countries in the Western Balkans, Eastern Europe and in Central Asia with financial support to study for a degree in Norway under the Quota Scheme.

The main objective of the Quota Scheme is to contribute to capacity building through education that will benefit the home country of the students when they return. The Quota Scheme is also intended to strengthen relations between Norway and the selected countries and thus contribute to internationalisation at Norwegian institutions of higher education.

Most universities and university colleges in Norway participate in the Quota scheme. The institutions involved are allocated a certain number of students under the programme each year. The scheme normally includes courses at Master’s and Ph.D. level in addition to certain professional/Bachelor’s degrees. Most of the Norwegian institutions offer courses and educational programmes in English.
