En Foco’s New Works Photography Awards is an annual program selecting three to seven U.S. based photographers of African, Asian, Latino, Native American, or Pacific Islander heritage through a free and open call for submissions. Acting as a creative incubator, it enables artists to create or complete an in-depth photographic series exploring themes of their choice, while providing an honoraria and infrastructure for a professional exhibition in New York.
Generous support for this year’s program has been provided by: the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA), the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA). We are grateful for additional support from Bogen, Lowepro, Print File, Fuji Film and Modernage Custom Digital Imaging Labs.
