The Houston Center for Photography (HCP) is now accepting applications for the 2019 Fellowship Exhibition, which is set to run May 10-July 7, 2019. Happening annually, the show is guest-juried by a respected curator, writer, critic, or photography expert, who selects two winners from the hundreds of applicants: an artist living with a 100-mile radius of Houston wins the Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship, while another artist (with no location-based restriction) wins the HCP Fellowship.
The guest juror for this year’s fellowship round is Britt Salvesen, the head curator of prints, drawings, and photographs at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She’s also worked at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, and has organized shows featuring works by artists Catherine Opie, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Gabriel Figueroa, among many others.
The 2018 Fellowship winners were Carolyn Drake (HCP Fellowship Recipient), and Francis Almendarez (Carol Crow Memorial Fellowship). See below for more details, and go here to apply. Applications for the 2019 Photography Fellowship Exhibition are due on October 22, 2018. (Update: the deadline has been extended to Monday, October 29, 2018 at midnight CST.)

—Live within a 100-mile radius of Houston (only for the Carol Crow Fellowship. HCP Fellowship applicants can live anywhere in the world.)
