WIPNYC - Lightside Individual Project Grant
Cara Phillips and myself are starting to look towards June to celebrate our 1st year of WIPNYC! Though we realize there is still snow on the ground and there are some months to go between now and then we have big news that will make the time fly.
That said we are thrilled to announce our first project grant (which will be awarded June 10th at the National Arts Club), funded by Lightside Photographic Services/ and co-sponsored by LTI. The $3,000 grant award will provide funding to one female photographer to support project costs. And as Cara mentioned on her blog, we are thrilled to be able to contribute to the art community this way. We are indeed looking forward to seeing all of the exciting projects, and as of April 1st, there will be more specific info on submitting.
Good luck! Stay tuned for more info!
