Visual projects require money. Many photographers and filmmakers produce work at their own financial cost. There are, however, plenty of funding sources available from different organisations. These organisations are ready to support image makers providing funding for research, creation, production, travel and living expenses.

There is a definitive technique to grant writing, learn this and strengthen your chances of reaching the top of the pile.

Donald Weber is a successful recipient of many grants including a Guggenheim Fellowship, The Lange-Taylor Prize, The Duke & Duchess of York Prize, the Magnum Foundation’s Emergency Fund and multiple Canada Council for the Arts grants in the last few years. He’s used the funding to create multiple award-winning projects, on his own terms and own time.

The Grant Writing Workshop covers a comprehensive overview of the entire grant writing process. Donald Weber breaks it down into four simple parts:

1) The Proposal. Don will examine some award winning proposals, including his Guggenheim Fellowship, Lange-Taylor and two Canada Council grants. We will also look at other award-winning proposals, including Robert Frank, Garry Winogrand, and other contemporary artists. We will look at why he wrote what he did and why it was successful. We will talk about the overall structure of writing a proposal, breaking it down into simple steps.

2) The Portfolio. After the proposal, an integral part of a successful grant is the portfolio and the editing of the photographs you choose. We examine what to look for and how to make the portfolio support your proposal.

3) The CV. Many people underestimate the power of a strong CV and its impact on a successful grant. We will discuss what makes a strong CV and how to turn your ordinary CV into extraordinary.

4) The Budget. A realistic and sensible budget is always necessary. Don will break down the differences between expenses, expected revenues, in-kind contributions, and other aspects of creating a practical, realistic budget enabling you to execute the proposal.
