The Alexia

Through grants, scholarships and special projects, The Alexia promotes the power of visual storytelling to shed light on significant issues around the world by supporting photographers and filmmakers whose work informs, fosters cultural understanding and inspires meaningful change.

More than $1.7 million in grants has gone to 170 student and professional photographers through the program’s annual competitions. At a time when many other resources have dwindled, The Alexia continues to support documentary photography and filmmaking on academic and professional levels.

The 2024 grant judging cycle has closed. The 2025 submission cycle will open in January.
