Call for Entries: En Foco’s New Works Photography Fellowship Awards

DESCRIPTION: En Foco’s New Works Photography Fellowship Awards is an annual program selecting several U.S. based photographers of Latino, African or Asian heritage, and Native Peoples of the Americas and Pacific, through a free, national call for entries.

New Works helps artists to create or complete an in-depth photographic series exploring themes of their choice, and provides the infrastructure needed for national visibility and a professional exhibition of their new work in the New York area. The goal is to identify and promote talented emerging and mid-career artists, creating a cross-cultural dialogue and providing artists with exposure and growth opportunities. Work can be in any photo-based style or genre (documentary, autobiographical, landscape, abstract, digital, pinhole, etc), or photo-based medium (installation, mixed media, alternative processes, etc).
