Fundación Siglo para las Artes de Castilla y León, through the Castilla y León Museum of Contemporary Art (MUSAC), is now accepting submissions for the 5th edition of its MUSAC Artistic Creation Grants 2010-2011, under the following Terms:

1.- The purpose of this grant scheme is to promote and stimulate artistic creation in all contemporary art disciplines: painting, sculpture, etching, drawing, photography, video, graphic works, installation, media art, electronic art or any other contemporary form, including multidisciplinary projects.

Grants shall be allocated to the best art projects, which must be new and original creations or formerly unpublished work in progress that the artist intends to complete, provided the latter has received no previous financial support, subsidy or grant.

A compulsory requirement in order to obtain a grant is to enjoy no simultaneous form of financial support, grant or subsidy, nor to be hired in any form of employment that may be incompatible with the grant’s execution. If such incompatibility were to arise, the grant may be withdrawn, upon a report to that effect by the Monitoring Committee.

2.- Total funds allocated to the Artistic Creation Grants shall be limited to SIXTY THOUSAND EURO (€ 60,000.00), to be divided among the selected projects, up to a maximum sum of FIFTEEN THOUSAND EURO (15,000.00 €) each, subject to the applicable tax deductions.

At least one third of the total sum allocated as grants shall be reserved for projects submitted by applicants born in the Region of Castilla y León or registered as residents there before the first day of the application period.

Grants shall be payable in various instalments depending on the project schedule submitted by the applicant.

3.- Applicant requirements.

In the case of team submissions, there shall be a designated representative. Accountability and payment of grants shall adhere to the conditions stated in the application documents.

Each individual or team shall submit a single project.

4.- The duration of grants shall be determined on the basis of the schedule estimated by the applicant in his or her submission, the final deadline being 31 December 2011.

Fundación Siglo, on the proposal of the Monitoring Committee, and having seen the work in progress, may exceptionally extend the duration of the grant as it sees fit, though never beyond the initial deadline, and subject to the availability of sufficient funds under the relevant budgetary item.

On the completion of the grant period, recipients shall submit a final report on the work they have carried out and its outcomes, and justify all expenses incurred in the project’s execution, in accordance with the estimated budget submitted with their application.

It shall sit after the close of the application deadline. The Jury shall adopt a unanimous decision, which shall be published in early April 2011 and notified in person to the applicants selected. The decision shall also be posted on the MUSAC website.

7.- Applications shall be assessed on the following criteria:
– the project’s artistic quality and novelty
– the project’s rigorous presentation and coherent discourse

Withdrawal of the grant implies the loss of the right to receive any outstanding instalments and, were responsibility for non-compliance attributable to the grantee, he or she may be requested to reimburse all sums previously received.

11.- These artistic creation grants do not provide any form of medical insurance.

12.- Submission of an application implies the full acceptance of these Terms and of the Jury’s final decision.

European Master of Fine Art Photography – Announcement

Istituto Europeo di Design Madrid

European Master of Fine Art Photography

Program director Moritz Neumüller

Faculty include: Martin Parr | Simon Roberts | Alejandro Castellote | Javier Vallhonrat | Jean-François Chevrier | Elger Esser | Beat Streuli | Andreas Müller-Pohle | Dinu Li |
Irina Tchmyreva | Joan Fontcuberta.

Simon Roberts, “Motherland” series, 2005

The European Master of Fine Art Photography is based on 3 fundamental premises:

– Its international nature, with a special focus on the European context.

– The excellence of its faculty.

– Its orientation towards artistic projects.

The purpose of the program is based on the premise that there is a conceptual European creative identity, which is and must primarily be a reference point in academics, culture and the art market. Its purpose, however, is not closed, but rather encompasses everything European; it is an invitation to diversity and exchange. In this sense, the participation of students from other continents is especially interesting and enriching.

This program is targeted at emerging photographers, as well as professionals in the photography industry who want to break into the art world. Classes will be held in Spanish and English. Thus, an upper intermediate level of both languages is required. Courses are taught by artists and international experts in their field, who speak from their own point of view, not from the text book. Our project tutors are the young and talented photographers Ricardo Cases, Joan Villaplana and Nicolás Combarro.

Dinu Li, “Secret Shadows” series, 2002

The duration of the course is 450 Hours. There is also a 200-academic-hour course module that allows the professional sector to participate in Intensive Workshops with the most significant authors and photographers in the program.

Start Date: April 27, 2011.
End Date: March 2012.

Partner institutions: European Photography Magazine | PhotoIreland Festival, Dublin | Central European House of Photography | Lumen Gallery, Budapest | Image Galleri, Aarhus | PhotoVisa, Krasnodar, Russia | Lieven Gevaert Research Centre for Photography, Brussels | Photographic Social Vision, Barcelona.

Artists-in-Residence for Emerging Photographers in NY.

Alice Austen House Museum
Artists-in-Residence for Emerging Photographers

When Alice Austen turned eleven in 1877 she received a camera from her uncle Oswald. Over the following half a century she developed into one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Her technical skills and strong aesthetic eye continue to fascinate us.

Thanks to a generous grant from New York Community Trust, the Austen House is able to offer two emerging photographers the opportunity to develop their technical skills and aesthetic sensibility over the course of nine months. It is our hope that the residency will launch a serious career.


During the nine months, the artist-in-residence will:

Have both the financial and instructive support to develop his or her own style and aesthetic sensibility

Identify career goals and a plan to achieve them

Become intimately familiar with the life and work of Alice Austen

Participate in all functions of a museum, including develop and curate exhibitions and education programs

Be able to exhibit work at the Austen House.

Receive a stipend of $800 per month.


We are looking for:

College graduates, or candidates who can demonstrate the equivalence and maturity.

Candidates who are living on Staten Island, NY, or have a strong connection to the borough.

Photographers who are members of groups under-served by the museum community

To Apply:

Please submit a resume and images as well as a statement explaining how you meet the eligibility criteria as well as how your residency would aid your career.

Mail to:

Carl Rutberg
Executive Director
The Alice Austen House Museum
2 Hylan Blvd.

The Alice Austen House Museum promotes public awareness and scholarly study regarding the life and work of Alice Austen (1866 – 1952). Austen was one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers, and over the course of her life she captured about 8,000 images. Though she is best known for her documentary work, Austen was an artist with a strong aesthetic sensibility. Furthermore, she was a landscape designer, a master tennis player, and the first woman on Staten Island to own a car. She never married, and instead spent fifty years with Gertrude Tate. A rebel who broke away from the ties of her Victorian environment, Alice Austen created her own independent life.

Austen lived in “Clear Comfort,” a Victorian Gothic cottage that dates back to a 1690 one-room Dutch farmhouse. The house, which is one of the oldest in New York and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1973, overlooks the New York Narrows and has a stunning panoramic view of lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Verrazano Bridge. For good reasons the New York City Parks Department voted it one of the most romantic sites in New York.

Inge Morath Award for Female Photographers under 30. Deadline April 30, 2011

The Inge Morath Foundation is calling for entries for its prestigious annual award, which rewards the achievements of a female photographer under the age of 30. In association with the Magnum Foundation, the Inge Morath Foundation is offering a $5000 cash prize to assist a female photographer in the completion of a longterm documentary project. The award is now in its eight year, and features, among its winners, photographers such as Claire Martin, Olivia Arthur, Jessica Dimmock and Mimi Chakarova.

Last year, for the first time since its launch, two photographers were awarded the top prize, each receiving $5000. Claire Martin won for her ongoing documentation of marginalised communities within prosperous nations. Lurdes Basoli won for her project Caracas, the City of Lost Bullets.

Inge Morath, who died in January 2002, was an Austrian-born photographer who worked with Magnum for almost 50 years. ‘Because Morath devoted much of her enthusiasm to encouraging women photographers, her colleagues at Magnum Photos established the Inge Morath Award in her honour,’ says the foundation.

The submission deadline is 30 April. Applicants must submit between 40 and 60 images, with a printed project description and Curriculum Vitae.
