Umrao Singh Sher-Gil Grant for Photography

Established in 2015, the Umrao Singh Sher-Gil Grant for Photography recognizes a photographer’s commitment to the ‘staged’ or ‘constructed’ image and documentary photography. Recognizing the need to enable Indian photographers to pursue their practice, SSAF has pledged an annual grant in Umrao Singh Sher-Gil’s name to encourage independent voices in photography. The grant is intended to assist photographers who have begun a project and need financial assistance to complete their work.
