Once again, the applicants and proposals submitted to the Spring 2021 Film Photo Award were nothing short of awe-inspiring. Every single proposal was thoughtful, nuanced, deeply felt and delivered, making the jurying exceedingly difficult. This notable consistency has proved to be the norm for applicants to the Film Photo Award, and is undoubtedly a reflection of the correlation between the medium of film photography and the intensity of care and passion that goes into every aspect of the practitioner’s work and research. There is an undeniable need for this medium, not simply a desire. The Film Photo Award strives to support photographers who need to create with this material and celebrate the work being made with it in the 21st century.
