Gomma Grant Contest
The Gomma Photography Grant is a grant contest tailored to fund and support photographers working in various genre. Begun in 2014, the Gomma Grant has quickly acquired a reputation for being ethical and quality-focused, with an eye for spotting fresh talent and encouraging those already in the spotlight. Photographers that are recognized through the Gomma Grant are known to have grown their career to a higher level, both professionally and artistically. Gomma has come a long way since the first Gomma Magazine came out in 2004. Throughout the years, Gomma has been actively promoting photographers and their work, both established and emerging photographers. We worked with internationally renowned artists, such as Roger Ballen, Anders Petersen, Michael Ackerman, Keizo Kitajima, and Daido Moriyama. The Gomma Grant is open to everyone. Any medium, black & white or colour, analogue or digital. Gomma's juror and editors are looking for consistency, personality, and courage.
You can submit between 6 and 20 images from an unfinished, ongoing or completed project.
Any medium accepted: black & white or color, analogue or digital.
Any genre accepted: Portraiture/ Documentary/ Fine Art/ Black & white/ Photojournalism/ Conceptual/ Landscape.
We like to reward photographers that do not follow the trends and are not copycats of any kind.
We are looking for photographers with a fresh eye, courage, and a distinct personality. Someone that has no fear to show their own soul throughout the work. Artists that have the curiosity to investigate the common and capture the every day.
