Los Angeles, CA—The Lucie Foundation announced that its 2021 Lucie Foundation Scholarship program opened on April 30, 2021. The program encompasses four categories of cash grants. Moreover, the deadline for applications is August 1, 2021.
“The Lucie Foundation is proud to support emerging talent with vision and 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, 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.
