The Robert Giard Fellowship Award in Moving Image

An annual award named for Robert Giard, a portrait, landscape, and figure photographer whose work often focused on LGBTQ lives and issues, this award is presented to an emerging, early or mid-career artist, from any country, working in photography, photo-based media, video, or moving image, including short-form film or video.  The award now alternates annually between artists working with still image (photography) and those working with moving image (video or film).  This year’s fellowship will be awarded to an artist working in moving image (video or film). In either case, this award will support a directed project, one that is new or continuing, that addresses issues of sexuality, gender, or LGBTQ identity.
