Update: The application deadline has been extended to March 19, 2012.
UNC students with an interest in documentary photography are invited to apply for one of four North Carolina Documentary Photography Awards. The $1,000 awards will enable the winners to pursue an independent documentary photography project in North Carolina during summer 2012
The North Carolina Collection Photographic Archives in the Wilson Special Collections Library is sponsoring the awards as a way to develop collections that depict events, topics, or places within the state.
“This is a way to build collections today that researchers of tomorrow will be able to use well into the future, as well as to acquaint students with the archives,” said North Carolina Collection Photographic Archivist Stephen Fletcher.
Applicants must be rising sophomores, juniors or seniors during the summer of 2012, or graduate students who will be enrolled at UNC during fall 2012.
