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 independent photojournalistic projects.
This year's program will include presentations of photo essays by grant recipients and finalists, a unique tribute to the work of W. Eugene Smith, a special keynote speech and the announcement and presentation of the 2013 jurors’ discretionary grant, the 2013 Howard Chapnick grant and the 2013 W. Eugene Smith Grant.
The grant is funded by generous contributions from the American Society of Media Photographers, Anastasia Photo, the Open Society Foundations, the International Center of Photography, NYCFotoWorks, Harbers Family Foundation, Canon USA, MediaStorm, Photo District News and the School of Visual Arts.
