Rfotofolio has three grants
The Denis Roussel Award
2018 marks the introduction of The Denis Roussel Award on Rfotofolio.
We first met Denis in 2013 when he entered our call What is Beauty? He worked on projects where even the compost bin was his muse, showing us that there is beauty everywhere.
If you where lucky enough to have a conversation with Denis, or to be a student of his, you knew how much Denis loved photography.
Denis was a photographer and educator. He loved sharing the beauty of the outdoors with his family and friends, and in his photography he shared that beauty with us. In 2017, Denis lost his battle with cancer. All of us lost the pleasure of seeing new work from this creative and resourceful artist.
We wanted in some small way help continue his legacy, and so the Denis Roussel Award was established. The Denis Roussel Award is open to all photographers whose work is based on the historical/alternative photographic processes, including silver gelatin.
The Rfotofolio Grant is awarded to a photographer who has experienced a hardship or a physical challenge and is working to continue their photographic endeavors.
If you know of a person that you would like to nominate a photographer, please contact us at email@example.com.
