Alexia Foundation for World Peace Invites Applications for Professional and Student Photography Awards

The Alexia Foundation for World Peace (www.alexiafoundation.org) is dedicated to helping professional and student photographers produce photographs that promote world peace and cultural understanding. The foundation is accepting applications for the following programs:

1. Professional Grant: The Alexia Foundation offers the Professional Grant to enable a photographer to have the financial ability to produce a substantial picture story that furthers the foundation’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. The recipient of the grant will receive $15,000 for the production of the proposed project. Any photographer may apply for this grant. Proposals that have received grants or awards exceeding $1,000 in the previous calendar year are not eligible. The award is for an individual photographer. Collaborative applications are not accepted. The deadline is January 16, 2006.

2. Student Competition: The Alexia Foundation provides partial scholarships for graduate and undergraduate students to study photojournalism at Syracuse University in London, England. The award program also provides cash grants to enable student photographers to produce a picture story that furthers the foundation’s goals of promoting world peace and cultural understanding. The first-place Student Award provides a $9,000 scholarship and a grant of $1,000; the second-place Student Award provides a $6,000 scholarship and a grant of $500; and three Awards of Special Recognition provide scholarships of $1,600 and grants of $500. Alexia Scholars are responsible for the balance of tuition and fees for the semester in London. All scholarships are contingent upon admission to the Syracuse University DIPA London Program. The Deadline is February 1, 2006.
