I’m currently in the process of writing a proposal for a grant and am rather enjoying the brainstorming process. Receiving funding to do a personal project. Sounds awesome right? I mean who wouldn’t want to receive money to do something they love especially if the project isn’t in your budget normally. Now that I’m excited I somehow have to translate that into an excellent proposal that can convince a panel I have an idea that deserves the money. Now to the “nitty gritty.”
The grant requires a single page proposal, which to me is pretty typical. You are required to do an important humanitarian or environmental project. Now these requirements are well within what I enjoy photographing so I’m getting my hopes up. I’m finding the hardest part is putting into words the final images that are floating around in my head. I worry that the language I use won’t explain well enough what I’m trying to say.
I hope to continue writing proposals and be successful a few times but I acknowledge that there is loads of competition and will always be difficult but life wouldn’t be interesting without challenges.
