In this first episode of 2017 all four podders, Sharron, Sean, Yan and DJ come together to discuss developments from the previous year and what to expect in 2017. In the news there are a few developments from CES and a quick look at what is on DJ's shopping list.
Eefje Ludwig from the Photographic Museum of Humanity speaks about the PHM Grant 2017 and other projects the PH Museum is taking on. Find out more about the PH Museum and the grants at phmuseum.com.
Earlier this month, Yan sat down with Vietnamese photographer Dat Vu and Cambodia-based Italian photographer Thomas Cristofoletti and chatted about photo and journalism collectives. Thomas is a co-founder of Ruom, a journalism collective focusing on social issues and stories. Dat is part of Matca, a newly-founded photo platform for Vietnamese photographers. It’s always important for photographers to have a community to share on-going work, to exchange ideas and to initiate collaborations. Dat and Thomas talk about the opportunities and challenges their collectives face.

This week DJ talks with Jim Dooley from the Alexia Foundation.
The Alexia Foundation will begin accepting applications for our Professional and Student Grants on Jan. 2, 2017.
The Alexia Foundation recognizes photographic bodies of work that may elevate understanding of the human condition, give light to what is not right and celebrate the best of humanity’s spirit.
Deadlines for submissions are:
Professional Grant – Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time
Student Grants – Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 5 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time.
The Professional Winner will receive a $20,000 grant to assist in the production of the proposed project.
The First Place Student Winner will received tuition for one semester at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications in Syracuse, NY. As the visual program at Newhouse has continued to grow, we found it better to offer a richer student experience in Syracuse instead of at the SU London program which was the traditional location.
The recipient of the First Place Student Grant may enroll in 9 to 12 credit hours of courses. It does not need to be part of a degree seeking sequence. We think of it as an opportunity to uniquely expand your story telling capabilities.
The First Place Student Winner will also receive a $1000 cash grant to help produce the proposed body of work and $500 will be awarded to the student’s academic department.
Up to four (4) Award of Excellence Winners will be named, at the judges' discretion. Award of Excellence winners will receive $1500 that may be applied toward tuition at Syracuse University or they may choose to attend one of the following workshops: a MediaStorm one-day workshop, a Momenta Photo Workshop or a Kalish Workshop, which is provided by The Gilka Grant.
Award of Excellence Winners will also receive a $500 cash grant to help produce her or his proposed picture story or multimedia project.
