Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation

The Foundation

Established in 2010, The Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation for Documentary Photography & Film is a non -profit organization committed to positive social discourse in underrepresented communities throughout the world. We encourage emerging and established photographers to keep their lenses fixed on the plight of the poor and disenfranchised. Headquartered in New York, Paris and Zurich, the Foundation is a charitable trust serving the international photographic community through expositions, grants, and other curatorial and editorial projects.

Documentary Photography

This grant was created to encourage the betterment of humanity through the presentation of editorially based images representing humanistic themes including triumph. Purpose of the grant is to support completion of proposed projects, either completely new or in progress.

Documentary Film

Our “Short-Short Documentary Film” grant award was a new category for us in 2013 for a film project between ten and thirty minutes in length (without commercial intermission). This category is for non-fiction film only. The subject of the film must cover topics similar to those covered in our still photography grants.

The exposition

For the second year running we are opening our exposition of documentary photography and documentary “Short-Short” films from around the world. The work covers the lives of people in disenfranchised communities and communities ravaged by war, famine, poverty, religious persecution, political oppression, forced migration, and many of the social issues and injustices impacting populations everywhere. This year our exposition will feature the work of our 2013 Documentary Photography laureate Vivek Singh of Delhi, India; the entry portfolios of our two shortlisted photographers Patrice Terraz of Marseille, France, and Andri Tambunan of Jakarta, Indonesia. Also featured will be work from the museums collected portfolio of our President & Founder Manuel Rivera-Ortiz, as well as a presentation of the top ten films including the film of 2013 Documentary Film laureate Kannan Arunasalam of Colombo, Sri Lanka.
