ICP x Black Press Freedom Fund
ICP was founded on the principles of concerned photography, the belief that imagery has the power to educate and change the world. It is unacceptable that systemic racism, injustice, and violence towards people of color have continued to endure in our nation and around the world. We stand in solidarity with Black communities and everyone who is working toward a more just future, and we believe that Black lives matter.
ICP is collaborating with the Black Press Freedom Fund to offer grants to black photojournalists who are documenting in their communities during the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests across the United States.
There are an incredible number of talented, gifted, and brave black storytellers on the frontlines, many of whom are risking their personal safety to document the historic protests currently taking place over the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and countless other Black Americans who have suffered police brutality and systemic racism in the United States.
Each emergency grant of $400 is intended to equip black photographers and visual storytellers with professional PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). To apply, please complete an online application.
