*Call for proposals: Photojaanic Photobook Grant 2016  *



The Photojaanic Photobook Grant  2016 will support a uniquely told
photo-story, told  through an inter-generational lens. The grant will be
awarded to a duo (example: grandparent/grandchild) of visual storytellers
chronicling a personal history.

Theme 2016:

Grandparents are a treasure of stories and memories. Traditionally, these
stories were passed on from generation to generation orally through
reciting anecdotes (in family gatherings on the dining table and so on).
Modern living may not allow such opportunities. A large part of our culture
is preserved in the  memories of our elderly, the custodians of our
collective memory.

Democratization of camera technology, digital techniques of photographing,
scanning and archiving have enabled these personal memories to be
documented and shared in the forms of photo albums, scrap books or personal
history books.

This grant will provide an opportunity for youngsters to engage with their
history and for their elderly collaborators to re-visit and share their
memories. They can trace their cultural, social or family history. This
grant will support making of such a book.
