Call to photographers.

A prize of $10,000 is awarded annually by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University in order to support documentary artists, working alone or in teams, who are involved in extended, on-going fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit the interplay of words and images.

The winner’s work is published in the Center for Documentary Studies online magazine and placed in the Archive of Documentary Arts at the Rubenstein Library at Duke University.

Competitive applicants to this prize have a point of view that is derived from an in-depth understanding of place, history, and the current situation, in concert with a personal relationship to the proposed work. Ultimately, their commitment is to use documentary expression to motivate the thinking and reflection of others.

A panel of writers, editors, and documentary artists judge the work.

Using the online submission system, submit up to 19 images, 15 pages of double-spaced writing, and/or 10 minutes of time-based media. Applicants must also submit a one-page project description, and a curriculum vitae with a $70 entry fee by May 15.
