REQUIREMENTS:
1. Applicants must be of Latino, African, Asian or Native (Americas or Pacific) heritage; be U.S. citizens or green card holders; and be over the age of 18.

Photographic imagery should contain a cultural consciousness that is grounded in identity and the search for a personal statement. This is completely open to your interpretation. Visit www.enfoco.org to view works by prior winners.
3. You may propose a new project idea, or propose to continue an existing body of work. Decisions will be based upon quality of images submitted and ability to complete the proposed project by February 2011.
4. If selected, your new work must consist of 15-20 exhibition-quality images. The group exhibition will be curated by En Foco staff in 2011, at which time the honorarium is paid.
5. Although not required, applicants are encouraged to become En Foco members. Basic membership includes a subscription to Nueva Luz photographic journal, a 1/2 hour in-house Portfolio Review, free admission at photo museums, discounts to En Foco workshops, and invitations to all En Foco events. Additional membership levels include more extensive benefits and substantial discounts.
6. All participants will be contacted by August 30, 2010, and final decisions will be made by September 10, 2010. No Calls please (and note that our offices will be closed for three weeks in August for vacation).

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
1. A written project proposal/description (no more than 400 words). Describe specific aspects of your work such as subject matter, context, content, location, and personal relevance.
2. A one-page biography and/or resume.

SELECTION PROCESS:
All submissions will be vetted (pre-reviewed) by a Committee comprised of En Foco's curatorial staff. This gives us an opportunity to identify potential artists for our other programs as well. Then, the top 50 entries are submitted to the Guest Juror for review, in order to select the two Fellows and three Honorable Mentions.
