Grant Writing Workshop in Berlin

Photograph: Donald Weber/VII Network

Learn how to obtain the funding you need and complete the projects the way you want.

VII photographer Donald Weber estimates that he’s won $178,000 through grant funding over the past five years, including a bursary from the Dorothea Lange - Paul Taylor Documentary Prize and a Guggenheim Fellowship, amongst others. He’s used the funding to create multiple award-winning projects, on his own terms and own time.

Weber will spend an intensive day examining what makes an award-winning proposal, breaking it down and helping to demystify the process. He’ll examine his own successful grants, as well as other photographers’. Weber will also outline the various funding organizations available to you. These organizations are ready to support photographers providing funding for research, creation, production, travel and living expenses. What’s the catch? Mostly very little to none.

After this workshop, you will gain all the insight you need to know in order to write your own successful proposal.
