Deadline: May 31st POYi Emerging Incentive Program

From the Pictures of the Year International website:

“For some it might be a passion, for others an avocation and to a few, maybe a dream not yet accomplished. Now, with the assistance of a new project from Pictures of the Year International (POYi), a program of the Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI), semi-professional, student, and early-career photographers will have the opportunity to do work of a global significance.

POYi, the oldest photojournalism program in the world, has announced the “POYi Emerging Vision Incentive.” The incentive will fund and showcase documentary work on social issues or political trends by aspiring documentary photographers. The Emerging Vision Incentive recipient will receive up to $10,000 to assist in developing a photo story that reflects daily life, social issues, cultural trends or news events.

“We are excited to be able to provide the environment and inspiration for emerging photographers to do work of worldwide importance,” said Rick Shaw, director of POYi. “We hope this program will help educate and motivate the next generation of social-conscious photojournalists and allow them to explore and expand avenues of publication that are currently unavailable to them.”

In addition to financial assistance, the recipient will have the opportunity to have his or her work displayed at RJI and The Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles during their exhibit of winning images from the 67th Annual POYi Competition which opens in June 2010. The Emerging Vision Incentive recipient will also receive a full day of career-development during the annual POYi Education Seminar and Awards Program.

The POYi Emerging Vision Incentive program is made possible through financial support from the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute and the Annenberg Foundation. For more information, please download the Emerging Incentive Guide and the Application Form.
