Kodak Film Grant

The generous folks at Kodak have teamed up with Too Much Chocolate for the Kodak Film Grant. It warms my little old heart that Kodak is willing to support emerging photographers. Go get your film on:

From Too Much Chocolate:

This grant will provide 10 non-represented photographers with the film needed to execute a new or ongoing personal project, to be completed during 2010. This partnership aims to recognize strong project ideas from talented and emerging photographers, allowing them to fully realize a body of work that may not have been achieved otherwise. At the start of 2011, the recipients’ final projects will be brought together and exhibited through a variety of online, magazine, and gallery showcases.

In the spirit of assistance and approachability, and to guarantee that no photographer is priced out of applying for this film grant, the submission fee is $10. The judging panel for the film grant will consist of:

– Marcel Saba, Director of Redux Pictures
– Clinton Cargill, Associate Picture Editor of the New York Times Magazine
– Conor Risch, Features Editor of PDN
– Andy Adams, Editor / Publisher of Flak Photo
– Alison Morley, Chair of ICP’s Documentary Photography and Photojournalism Program
– Audrey Jonckheer, Director of Worldwide Pro Photographer Relations at Kodak
– Jake Stangel, Founder / Editor of Too Much Chocolate

Kodak thrives on supporting as well as promoting talented photographers, and looks forward to developing meaningful and sustainable relationships with the recipients of the too much chocolate + Kodak film grant. Kodak will work with the photographers to promote their  work on web sites, blogs as well as by photography trades. Additionally, a selection of each grant recipient’s work have a chance to be exhibited on Kodak’s Times Square Jumbotron.

In return for providing film, Kodak asks grant recipients to mention Kodak for contributing the film in any media interviews, blogs, gallery shows, books and on their websites with a Kodak logo and a link to Kodak.com. In addition, Kodak will have the option to use 2-3 project images at no cost for a 2-year period for display at trade shows and maybe on the Kodak.com website.
