The Alexia Grants

The Alexia 2018 competition will begin accepting applications on Jan. 7, 2018.

The Alexia Foundation awards grants to student and professional visual journalists to help them produce projects that inspire change by addressing topics that are socially significant.

Alexia Foundation Grants were created nearly 30 years ago to support still photographers and that remains our primary mission. We recognize that the profession more and more calls for a diverse range of story forms. Therefore, while your submissions must have a set of still photographs, you may also submit other story forms as part of your grant application submission. Those may include audio, video, VR or any other visual format. There will be a spot on the submission site to post up to two links.

Grants are administered by the Foundation and the endowed Alexia Chair at The Newhouse School at Syracuse University.


The application deadline for the Professional Grant is Thursday, February 1, 2018 at midnight Eastern U.S. Time.

The deadline for the Student Grants is Thursday, March 1, 2018, at midnight Eastern U.S. Time.
