The BFA Photography and MFA Photography, Video and Related Media departments proudly host the ceremony for the 33rd Annual W. Eugene Smith Grant in the Humanistic Photography and Howard Chapnick Grant for the Advancement of Photojournalism.
Funded in part by the School of Visual Arts, the W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography is presented annually to photographers whose work is judged by a panel of experts to be in the best tradition of the compassionate dedication exhibited by W. Eugene Smith during his 45-year photojournalism career. The grant enables recipients to undertake and complete worthy photojournalistic projects.
The W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography is funded by generous contributions from American Society of Media Photographers, Canon USA, MediaStorm, the Open Society Foundations and SVA.
The program will include presentations of photo essays by this year’s grant and fellowship recipients and finalists, a unique tribute to the work of W. Eugene Smith, a special keynote speech, and the announcement and presentation of the 2012 jurors’ discretionary grant, the 2012 Howard Chapnick grant, and the 2012 W. Eugene Smith Grant.
