Jeff L. Rosenheim of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be Inaugural Juror for the Michael P. Smith Grant for Documentary Photography for 2009.
The New Orleans Photo Alliance will award one $5000 grant annually to a photographer residing in the Gulf Coast states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Both emerging and established photographers living in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida are eligible to apply to the MPS Fund. The subject matter for the proposed project, however, is not limited to the Gulf Coast region. NOPA will accept grant applications through September 1, 2009 and will announce the winner during this year’s PhotoNOLA festival in December 2009.
