PhotogrVphy Magazine established the annual $1000 PhotogrVphy Grant to support photographers working across genres around the world. Every year, they welcome an international jury of editors, curators, publishers, agents, gallerists, academics to select winners who fit into five broad but distinct categories. This year’s categories are Architecture, Conceptual, Nature, Photojournalism, and Culture.

The Archicture category is devoted to pictures of the built environment. Subjects can be modern or ancient, and photographs can range from up-close compositions to sprawling cityscapes. Nature is about the other side of the coin: wild places and creatures that bring us back to our powerful yet fragile planet and remind us of our role within it.

In the era of globalization, images in the Culture genre capture the shifting terrain of humanity, heritage, and community. With an eye towards history, photography in this category points to our collective future. The Photojournalism category extends to any documentary story told through pictures, from sports to breaking news to awareness-raising tales of social injustice and conflict. The Conceptual category, of course, is all about innovative ideas executed in surprising ways.
