Recipients are selected by a review panel on the basis of artistic excellence, accomplishment to date, and the promise of future achievement.  

The Film Photo Award is open to all emerging, established, and student photographers worldwide, 18 years old or older. During each spring and fall grant cycle, 3 film awards will be granted: New Project Award, Continuing Project Award, and Student Project Award
