Business / Philosophy of Photography Taking pics is one thing, but understanding why we take them, what they mean, what they are best used for, how they effect our reality -- all of these and more are important issues of the Philosophy of Photography. One of the best authors on the subject is Susan Sontag in her book "On Photography."

I want to start off with something for the Americans here: The Fulbright Fellowship. It's not just for professors and they don't all last a year. Many are for artists and some are as short as a month. If you have a desire to travel internationally this is a great way to do it. I'm an Alum of this Fulbright Fellowship: http://catalog.cies.org/viewAward.aspx?n=3151

I strongly urge you to apply!

A tip for all fellowships and grants including this one: find out who has gotten it in the past. You can usually find a list of prior awardees and their contact info. They can give you great insight into what to avoid in your application and what they are looking for. Each year I'm usually contacted by two or three people regarding the Fulbright....

Boston Center for the Arts Residency Program—The Boston Center for the Arts (BCA) is accepting applications for the Artist Residency Program. The program aims to provide an environment where artists can experiment with their craft, develop their focus or test new ideas and simultaneously engage in public dialogue in a way that is considerate to the artist’s time and process. This fifteen-week, process-oriented residency is awarded to two individual artists per year (no groups or collaborative pairs). Through a series of community programs jointly developed by the artist and the BCA, it allows artists to connect to the public and explore themes that inform their residency project.
International artists are invited to apply; however, all artists are responsible for their own visa, travel, living and housing expenses. With the BCA’s commitment to local artists, at least one resident will be an individual based in Massachusetts.
This year jurors include: Jenelle Porter, senior curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; Andrew Witkin; Barbara Krakow Gallery; and Catherine D'Ignazio, director, the Institute for Infinitely Small Things.
Support | Artists receive a $2,250 honorarium, 239 square foot studio work place, Intern assistance (artist must provide their own housing)
Deadline: April 20, 2012

The National Parks Service in the US offers many residencies, this is one:

The Artist-In-Residence Program at Petrified Forest National Park offers professional visual, performing, and literary artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. Selected artists stay in park housing for two-week periods from April through October. No stipend is provided. Artists must be prepared to work in high desert, summer weather conditions that include high winds, low relative humidity and temperatures reaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and lows reaching roughly 40 degrees at night.
The finished artwork will characterize Petrified Forest National Park for present and future generations and will offer the public an opportunity to see our heritage through the eyes and ears of the contributing artists, thereby fulfilling one of the program’s main purposes.
For more details - Petrified Forest National Park A.I.R.

What a great opportunity these could provide for those that qualify. Heck I'd even go for the smaller grants/workshops if I were able to in a heartbeat.

Best of luck to anyone here going for them.

International Photographer in Residence Programme 2013

Archisle: The Jersey Contemporary Photography Programme, hosted by the Société Jersiaise (Jersey Society) in the British Channel Island of Jersey aims to promote contemporary photography through an ongoing programme of exhibitions, education and commissions. The Archisle project connects photographic archives, contemporary practice and experiences of island cultures and geographies through the development of a space for creative discourse between Jersey and international practitioners.
Archisle is currently inviting applications for the position of Photographer in Residence launching in 2013. This is an exciting post commencing in April/May running for six months through to September/October 2013. The residency provides the following key benefits and opportunities:
  • £10,000 bursary for the commission/production of a body of work and solo exhibition
  • Studio space with access to inkjet printing and office/internet resources
  • Living accommodation and (limited) expenses
  • Travel costs (subject to approval)
A key focus of the Archisle project is to engage the residency programme with Jersey culture and community through audience and participatory involvement. In addition to the commission and exhibition of work responding to the cultural context of the island of Jersey, the resident will be contracted to teach photography one day per week (or equivalent) over the six month duration of the project. This teaching will be delivered in a workshop format to a range of educational and community groups. Applications are therefore encouraged from practitioners possessing the desire, enthusiasm and a proven ability to impart technical skills and develop critical understanding of contemporary photography across a diverse range of participants.
Applicants are requested to submit:
  • Examples of recent work (min 10/max 20 images)
  • Statement describing current practice
  • Statement of objectives for the residency including an outline commission/exhibition proposal
  • A current CV including details of past exhibitions/publications
  • An estimate of travel costs to Jersey
Applications may be made by post or email to:

Jersey, Channel Islands

ArtFunkl is delighted to announce the launch of the Experimenta series of residencies for Visual Artists, Writers and Film/Video Makers. This is a special residency project sponsored by ArtFunkl and there are no fees for artists to attend.
The aim of this new residency series is to bring together combinations of writers and artists to work side by side, creating new energies and new possibilities for creative dialogue. It is an opportunity for artists and writers to open up their practice to ideas and methods of working outside their habitual processes, a chance to explore and experiment.
Manchester is a city which is active in many areas of the Arts. It also has it’s own strong identity and cultural definition, which is fluid and constantly re-inventing itself. Due to the size and location of the city in the north West of England, there is a freedom in the creative environment which is not readily found in larger cities where the Art-World perhaps operates within stricter parameters.

I've done this residency and I recommend it!
*******

The Maryland Institute College of Art is pleased to announce that it
is now accepting applications for the 2013 sessions of The Alfred and
Trafford Klots International Program for Artists in Brittany, France.

The dates of our two five-week sessions are:

Session I: Saturday May 18 to Friday June 21, 2013

Session II : Saturday June 29 to Friday August 2, 2013

The application deadline is February 1, 2013.

Those awarded a Residency will be notified by March 1, 2013.

The MICA Artist Residency in Brittany is housed in the medieval
riverside village of Léhon, a "Petite Cité de Caractère." Léhon is
graced by a ninth-century abbey and its gardens and by the ruins of
the oldest fortress in Brittany on a hill overlooking the village.
Léhon is a short walk along the river
Rance to the city of Dinan, which holds the coveted designation "Cité
d'Art et d'Histoire" and is close to Dinard, St. Malo, Mont Saint
Michel, and Rennes. The fishing villages and beaches of the Emerald
Coast are but a short drive away.

Competitive residencies are open to artists and artist-couples working
in any media. Complete information, including the on-line application
form, is available at

More than 1.000 artists from around 100 countries have developed and advanced projects at the Akademie since its opening in 1990, creating a close-knit, global network of Solitude alumni that expands from year to year. The Akademie persues an intense exchange between artistic and scientific disciplines.

Berwick Residencies – now accepting applications
Deadline: Monday 22 October 2012 5pm
Duration: 6 months
Location: Berwick-upon-tweed, UK
As part of its new Arts Council funding, in April 2012 The Maltings Theatre & Cinema announced the formation of Berwick Visual Arts, a new initiative that brings visual arts in Berwick-upon-Tweed under one banner, including existing arts venues, potential new venue partners, and the wider visual arts community. For more information click here, or to download a detailed press release (23 April 2012) click here.
Berwick Visual Arts is pleased to announce the first of two new residency opportunities for visual artists to research and develop a project and/or new work. The residency programme will enable artists to respond to what Berwick offers in terms of its unique history, coastal and border location, unusual spaces, archives and collections, social contexts and to work with its people. For the first residency Berwick Visual Arts is working in collaboration with Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival to offer an artist working with moving image the opportunity to show the resulting work as part of the Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival in late September 2013. To download the Application pack in MS Word click here, or in PDF format click here.
Eligibility
The residency opportunity requires the applicant artist to have been out of college (BA graduate) for a minimum of 3 years and to be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to their artistic practice and evidence a body of work and strong track record, through new work, projects, exhibitions, publishing,and/or commissions. Part of this track record should be specifically in moving image work, though we welcome applications from artists working across different art forms.
The Residencies
The residency is for a 6 month period and is required to produce an outcome for the Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival 2013 which will take place during September 2013
Each year Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival responds to a chosen theme, and in 2013 it will explore the region’s long-standing historical, industrial and cultural links with Northern Europe, through cinema and the moving image.
Funding
The funding available for the residency is up to £12,000. This figure is based on a residency period of 6 months spent living and working in the area. This figure is inclusive of artist’s commission fee, accommodation in Berwick and material costs. Production and exhibition costs for the final outcome of the residency will be supported by Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival and agreed through further discussion with the festival.
Berwick Visual Arts will offer advice on accommodation options and rental rates are comparatively modest in Berwick.
The funding available remains the same when applied to an artist collaboration, where 2 or a group of artists work as one practice.
Application process
Artists are asked to submit their proposals by completing the application form provided. Shortlisted artists will be invited for interview during the week beginning the 12
th November 2012.
A payment of £150-200 will be given to those artists invited to interview and who are travelling from outside the area to cover travel and subsistence. Applications will be assessed on the following criteria:
• Eligibility – see point 2.0
• Artistic merit of examples previous work submitted.
• Strength of written proposal – including concept and response to themes.
• Impact and benefits to artists own practice .
• Impact and benefit to Berwick-upon Tweed, Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival.
APPLICATION DEADLINE IS Monday 22nd October at 5pm Applications will not be accepted after 5pm and must be submitted via email to [email protected] and [email protected] or via the online form.
