About the Award
Winners receive a full tuition scholarship to a domestic workshop with Momenta Workshops as well as a travel stipend of $500.
Eligible candidates must be United States based, full-time college students currently enrolled at an accredited college or university. Undergraduate or graduate students may apply.
The award committee will be comprised of the generous donor of the award Patrick West & two of the Momenta Workshops founders. Winners criteria are based on the content of their portfolio and their cover letter equally. If you are a new photographer but have a strong passion for photographing social issues, you just might win if your letter is strong enough. So all are encouraged to apply. If you do not win, you can apply again as many times as you like.
How To Apply
To apply, send a cover letter and a link to your online portfolio to our staff email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cover letter should explain why you would like to attend a Momenta Workshop and how this workshop will benefit your career goals. Make the Subject: “The West Award: Los Angeles Application.”
The West Award deadline for Project Los Angeles 2017 is Friday, December 9, 2016 at 9 p.m PST.
