The Center for Documentary Studies continues to make awards for documentary still photography.
The Lange-Taylor Prize is intended for the advancement of an ongoing project that fully exploits, in the tradition of Dorothea Lange and Paul Taylor’s important work, the relationship of words and images in the powerful, persuasive representation of a subject. The focus is on the strength, breadth, and nuance of the work as an extended narrative and meditation.
The Lange-Taylor Prize is open to documentary artists of any age and nationality who are involved in extended, ongoing fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit, in intriguing and effective ways, the interplay of words and images in the creation and presentation of their work. Single artists as well as collaborative teams are eligible.
Submissions for the Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize will be accepted from February 1 to May 9, 2016. Entries must be submitted on May 9 before midnight (EST). (See note on multiple entries under FAQ’s.)
