Grantees were chosen by an eight-member panel, all of whom served on the Advisory Board of the DPPF. Panel members’ work is featured by Getty Images, Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and major media outlets; they have been recognized by World Press Photo, National Press Photographers Association, the International Olympic Committee, and Pictures of the Year International. Three members of the panel will serve as mentors to the recipients of the $5,000 grants.
2021 GRANTS & MENTORSHIPS
The next application period is expected to be live in early 2021. More details will be available here by late 2020.
The DPPF supports emerging and early-career sports photographers. Candidates should demonstrate serious pursuit of a sports photography career. Photographers with more than 3 years’ sustained professional experience are considered beyond the scope of the DPPF’s programs.
Fortunately, the 2020 Grants and Mentorships programs will go forward as planned and are not impacted by COVID-19 restrictions. Whether we will be able to host the Sports Photography Gathering scheduled for September 2020 will be reassessed by mid-summer in the light of new developments and guidelines.
