The Howard Chapnick Grant sponsored in part by ASMP, was established in 1996 by the Smith Fund and friends of Howard Chapnick to honor his memory as the head of the Black Star photo agency, and to encourage and support leadership in fields ancillary to photojournalism, such as editing, research, education and management. The grant award amount is $5,000.  The grant may also be used to further education or research initiatives, as well as long-term sabbatical projects or internships.

Recipients of the Howard Chapnick Grant will be selected by the Board of Trustees of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund in Humanistic Photography.

Deadline to apply: July 15th, 2014
