This special workshop program is based on the internationally known Art Wolfe Katmai Photography Workshop and will visit many of the same locations. The deadline for applications is at the end of this month, March 31, 2016.
Here are some links that you need to visit. Firstly, The Luminous Endowment For Photographers was created last year by Michael Reichmann, the founder of this site.

There are currently eleven different grants available to photographers in various countries around the world.
