Katrina Media Fellowship for Photographers and Other Media Makers

> The Open Society Institute (OSI) http://www.soros.org/ is pleased
to
> announce a one-time fellowship competition in response to critical
> issues of poverty, racism, and government neglect that were laid bare
> by
> Hurricane Katrina. The Katrina Media Fellowships
> http://www.soros.org/initiatives/justice/focus_areas/katrina will
> support media makers working in photography, print and radio
> journalism,
> and documentary film and video to generate and improve media coverage
> of
> issues exposed by Katrina and to stimulate and sustain a national
> conversation on these issues.
>
>
>
> Applicants may propose projects that expand and deepen the public's
> understanding of race and class inequalities that were brought to
light
> by Katrina's aftermath. Applicants may also propose projects that
> address the government's response to problems caused or illuminated by
> Katrina, the use or misuse of public funds, the role of private
> contractors, the effectiveness of clean-up and rebuilding efforts,
> citizen involvement in these efforts, and lessons learned that should
> inform the handling of future natural and man-made disasters. In
> addition, applicants may propose projects that draw attention to OSI's
> current or past programmatic priorities using Katrina as the frame.
> These priorities include, but are not limited to, access to legal
> services and government assistance, criminal justice reform, improving
> end-of-life care and access to health care, and education reform.
>
>
>
> OSI expects to award 12 to 15 fellowships in mid-May 2006. Fellows
will
> receive between $15,000 and $35,000 to carry out projects in
> photography, print, radio, and documentary film and video production.
> Award amounts will cover a stipend and project expenses and will vary
> depending on the project duration, medium, and costs involved. The
> fellowship term is one year and begins June 15, 2006. OSI will give
> special consideration to applicants who have been displaced from or
are
> residents of the Gulf Region.
