The panel of judges for the inaugural Women Photograph Grants spent days reading over more than 500 project proposals. There were some consistent suggestions that we had for photographers working on their next applications, and wanted to share.
Women Photograph is thrilled to announce the recipients of the 2017 grants: the Women Photograph + Pulitzer Center grant of $5,000 will go to Alex Kay Potter for her work on the ongoing war in Yemen. The three Women Photograph + ONA grants of $2,500 will go to Luján Agusti, Gabriella Demczuk, and Néha Hirve. We received more than 500 applications from photographers around the world — thank you to everyone who sent in proposals! Congratulations to the four women selected — you can read more about their projects and connect with their work below.
