“We are pleased to recognize last year’s recipients of the Aaron Siskind Foundation IPF grants. Our panel of judges selected six applicants to receive cash grants of $5,000 to help further their creative projects and abilities. The panel’s job was not an easy one, with so much great work and 900+ applications received. If you applied in 2007 and did not receive a grant, don’t give up! Several 2007 recipients had previously applied one or more times.”
