Queer|Art Announces Judges For Two Annual Grants:

The Robert Giard Grant for Emerging LGBTQ+ Photographers and The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant

Queer|Art is proud to open applications for two annual grants: The Robert Giard Grant for Emerging LGBTQ+ Photographers and The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant.

The Robert Giard Grant for Emerging LGBTQ+ Photographers supports the creation of work by photographers whose projects address issues of sexuality, gender, or LGBTQ+ identity. With support from The Robert Giard Foundation, the international grant provides an award of $10,000 for the winner, and $1250 for four finalists, to support the creation of new work by emerging LGBTQ+ photographers.

Named in honor of photographer Robert Giard (1939-2002), a portrait, landscape, and figure photographer whose work focused on LGBTQ+ lives and issues, the grant focuses on supporting emerging LGBTQ+ photographers who document, depict, and interrogate past and present LGBTQ+ cultures. This grant is made possible entirely through support provided by The Robert Giard Foundation. This year’s judges include Lola Flash, Ariel Goldberg, Leandro Justen, Logan MacDonald, and Benjy Russell. Applications close February 15, 2023.

The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant is an annual grant awarded to self-identified lesbians for making visionary moving-image art. Work can be experimental animation, experimental documentary, experimental narrative, cross-genre, or solely experimental. Applicants must be based in the U.S. This grant was established by Hammer in 2017 to give needed support to moving-image art made by lesbians. 

The grant is supported directly by funds provided by Hammer’s estate and administered through Queer|Art by lesbians for lesbians, with a rotating panel of judges. This year’s judges include Taylor Renee Aldridge, Nazlı Dinçel, and Lourdes Portillo. The grant includes an award of $7,000. Applications close February 15th, 2023.
