Los Angeles, CA—It is the continuing mission of the Lucie Foundation to support emerging talent with vision and dynamic ideas that challenge as well as progress the art of still photography into work that compels. With this in mind, the 2022 Lucie Foundation Scholarship program and Photo Book Prize launched.
“Our support of photography is broad, from fine art to documentary and photojournalism to digital and film-based works. Our concern is to support emerging photographers producing work that is at once gripping, and original,” the foundation announced.
Moreover, the Lucie Foundation is providing four cash grants to support the work of emerging and established photographers. The deadline for the scholarship program is September 1, 2022.
