Fraction Magazine is teaming up with photographer Raymond Meeks to kick of the new Fraction Fund, financial assistance for photographers with incomplete photographic projects.
The concept is this:
Ray has just recently announced "who will stay", the third and final segment of personal journals/artist books, which began with "carousel" and "amwell, continuum". Together with Fraction, Ray will be offering a limited edition of 50 books which include an original print, signed and editioned.
When the edition sells out, 20 percent of the sale price (approx. $1000), will go towards the Fraction Fund.
We will then do an announcement and a "Call for Submissions". This will be free to enter. The photographer will be required to send links (not physical prints, please) and a brief statement about the work and why the funds are needed. (you do not need to buy the book to enter. you must have a personal website; not flickr, facebook, deviatart, etc).
The winner be selected by David Bram, awarded approximately $1000 and will be included in an issue of Fraction Magazine.
WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE OFFICIAL KICK OFF IN JANUARY
