Development Grants

DPPF Development Grants support sports photographers of great potential whose current portfolio quality may be affected by severe economic and/or geographic or cultural limitations. Recipients are chosen from among the pool of candidates in each year’s open call.

International candidates should be aware that the DPPF is not able to provide support that is prohibited under U.S. law.
