Grants Sony Alpha Female+ Grant Program
International Deadline: Monthly; April 3, 2022 – Sony Alpha Female provides a platform for photographers and videographers to share their stories and inspire the world with their creativity, passion, and drive. We aim to make the world a more equal, more representative, and more open place. With you by our side, there’s nothing holding us back.
Twelve grant packages, each with more than $8000 ($5000 in cash and approximately $3000 in Sony Alpha gear) make the Alpha Female+ Grant Program a unique opportunity not to be missed.
From May 2021 – April 2022, we will award one grant every month to a photographer or videographer with a project that aligns with our mission to further the female or minority perspective.
Unique to the grant program is that each grant application is considered for all remaining monthly grants, until the last grant is awarded in April 2022. Also, applicants can apply once a month with a new project idea to increase chances of winning.
Program is open to legal residents of the 50 United States, D.C., and Canada (excluding the Province of Quebec) that are 18 years and older, regardless of gender identity.
You don’t need to own or use a Sony camera to apply. Winners will be expected to create their project with their new Sony camera and lens within five weeks of being notified that they have won.
All eligible entries for each Monthly Period will be judged by Sony, in its sole discretion, based on the following criteria.
- Project Theme – 30%
- Project Creativity – 30%
- Perceived Project Feasibility – 10%
- Ability to Convey Self Identity of Entrant (i.e. “who Entrant is”) in Personal Video – 10%
