This grant is open to both professional and emerging photographers from any country, worldwide. Applicants must be over 21 years of age and should have a proven ability to produce outstanding imagery and coherent photo essays, as well as the background necessary to carry out the proposed project. This means that for photographers planning to complete a project in a country other than their own country of origin, there should be a clear demonstration of preparation for work in that country (i.e. proper visas, contacts, language training, etc.), and preferably some experience in the country or a good deal of experience and understanding of the culture and language/customs.

- The degree to which the applicant’s non-photographic background and training has prepared him/her to undertake the project.
- The environmental or humanitarian significance of the project and its potential positive contributions.
- The feasibility and viability of the completion of the proposed project within the projected time frame and with the grant funding.
