Focused Support for Sports Photographers

The DPPF is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to providing career development opportunities to emerging sports photographers. Founded in 2019 in memory of the late photojournalist Doug Pensinger, the DPPF provides support in the form of grants, mentorships, and opportunities to build community and make connections with other photographers.

2020 grant winners announced

10 emerging photographers selected from a competitive field received an aggregate of $22,000 in grants and equipment, mentorships, and networking opportunities with top industry professionals.

2020 Sports Photography Gathering Cancelled

The DPPF prioritizes the health and safety of our grantees and the professionals on our boards. Therefore, we are cancelling this September’s inaugural Sports Photography Gathering in Golden CO due to the spread of COVID-19.

The 2020 grantees will receive an expenses-paid trip to next year’s Gathering, scheduled for September 2021.
