2018 Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize

Center for Documentary Studies

Entry Deadline: May. 1

Durham, NC 27705


A prize of $10,000 is given annually by the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University to support documentary artists, working alone or in teams, who are involved in extended, on-going fieldwork projects that rely on and exploit the interplay of words and images. Competitive applicants to this prize have a point of view derived from an in-depth understanding of place, history, and the current situation, in concert with a personal relationship to the proposed work. Ultimately, their commitment is to use documentary expression to motivate the thinking and reflection of others.

The winner will have their work published in the Center for Documentary Studies’ digital publications and inclusion in the Archive of Documentary Arts at Rubenstein Library at Duke University.
