The Magnum Foundation has launched a new website for their Emergency Fund, and it’s definitely something you should make time to go check out. There are already several stories up on the site, along with information about how you can get involved and help support these photographers.
More on the Emergency Fund from the Magnum Foundation Site:
The Emergency Fund supports experienced photographers with a commitment to documenting social issues, working long-term, and engaging with an issue over time. Projects address critical global issues that have not received the attention they deserve, or budding crises that are still over the horizon. Photographers retain the copyright to their work and distribute it widely: through traditional and new media, in collaboration with nonprofits or NGOs, and on the Emergency Fund website.
Each year, a diverse group of photography professionals nominate 100 professional photographers to submit proposals. An independent Editorial Board selects 10 to 20 photographers—based on the strength of their proposals and the importance of the issues they propose to address—to support.
