Now open for proposal submissions, the Alexia Foundation just announced the call for entries for the 2014 Women’s Initiative Grant. A $25,000 grant will be awarded to a project that will address a significant issue that involves and affects women. Photojournalists based anywhere in the world are invited to submit proposals.

Unlike the first Women’s Initiative Grant, the subject matter is not restricted to a certain topic or location. The press release states, “This call for entries is intended to permit the photographer to propose a serious documentary photographic or multimedia project encompassing any issue involving women anywhere in the world.”

The deadline for submission is June 30, 2014. Learn more about the grant and how to apply here.

“The Alexia Foundation’s main purpose is to encourage and help photojournalists create stories that drive change. While our traditional grant guidelines put no limits on the subject matter for grant proposals, a number of proposals about women’s rights in the last few years have been so powerful that we have been compelled to create a grant specifically on issues relating to women.”
