Download in PDF Format

SF Camerawork invites artists, collectives, and curators working with photography and related media to submit proposals for an exhibition in 2021 at SF Camerawork's spacious gallery in downtown San Francisco. The selected proposal will receive the inaugural SF Camerawork Exhibition Award—which includes a $5,000 project grant plus shipping, installation, technical, marketing, and community engagement support.

What we'd love to see
SF Camerawork invites a wide range of photographic work and encourages experimental and risk-taking new work in photography and related media, including fine art, installation, multi-media, social justice, and documentary projects.

SF Camerawork is committed to equity and diversity as primary to our mission of provoking discovery and exchange of new perspectives, ideas, and experiences for all who value photography.

Project proposals should be new and exciting in content as well as substantially realized and prepared for a significant exhibition. Please review our exhibitions archive to get a sense of the scope, media, and themes of past SF Camerawork exhibitions.
