Alpha Female+ Grant Program 2020 for Female Photographers (up to $5,000)
Deadline: February 15, 2021
Applications are open for the Alpha Female+ Grant Program 2020. The visual creator industry needs diverse voices to thrive and reach new heights. Alpha Female+ is on a mission to support the growth of underrepresented voices in photography, videography, and filmmaking, and provide a platform for creators across the artistic spectrum furthering this mission with their work.
The winners will be expected to use their Sony camera systems to create their photo or video project within four weeks of being notified that they have won the grant.
During their four-week journey, winners will be asked to document their process with some behind the scenes photos and/or video. At the end of the four-week grant period, winners will submit their completed project along with a written summary about the project to the Alpha Female+ team. Alpha Female+ intends to share your story and project with their community via AlphaUniverse.com and their Sony Alpha social channels.
