Creator Labs Photo Fund


Deadline: 18 July 2021

Call Closed: 2021 Creator Labs Photo Fund

Supporting the Creativity of Tomorrow


Google's Creator Labs and Aperture are pleased to launch the Creator Labs Photo Fund—a new initiative providing financial support to artists in the wake of COVID-19. With artists and creatives heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it has never been more important and vital to provide support for this community.

Submissions will be free and open to any photographer or lens-based artist living in the United States, and twenty selected artists will be awarded a prize of $5,000 each. To apply to the Creator Labs Photo Fund, all entrants will need to submit 8 to 10 images from one body of work, showing a commitment to making a cohesive and compelling series or project. The project does not need to be finished in order to enter. Entrants will not be evaluated on the basis of prior experience, publications, or exhibition history, but instead on the strength and originality of their vision.

This fund is made possible by Google Devices and Services in partnership with Aperture.

This call to entry is now closed.
