There are currently no Jimmy Nelson Foundation calls open. Due to the popularity of our previous project calls, we are currently occupied with the selection and execution of current projects. New calls can be expected at later notice and will be published here.
As a way of engaging people with our world’s richness in cultural diversity, The Jimmy Nelson Foundation initiates calls for projects that focus on promoting existing cultures as part of a culturally diverse world.
Our calls ask for artists and craftsmen of all sorts to apply with their proposed projects. An example of people who might like to apply are: musicians, visual artists, designers, writers, but also people in the field of cuisine, spirituality, (herbal) medicine, etc. Eligible applicants can convince the JNF of the quality of their work. Furthermore, they need to show an affinity and experience with their host culture. We specifically ask people from a variety of cultures to apply.
Eligible project applications resonate the spirit of Jimmy Nelson’s photography work. They engage with a specific cultural practice/highlight and are able to show its importance. Here, culture is defined in the widest sense of the word. Applicable projects are based on equality between the stakeholders and have a concretely described and valuable outcome.
Eligible project applications contain a detailed financial plan. This includes a justification of the entire cost of the project and shows how the fund helps to complete the budget. The higher the amount of funding requested, the smaller the chances of selection. Moreover, the time span of the project should be clearly demarcated the maximum project duration is 12 months.
