Focus on the Story is an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C. We support and encourage photographers of diverse backgrounds to explore visual storytelling’s critical role in spurring social change.
Our programming includes:
- Organizing regular photography exhibits and talks around important regional, national and global issues, including an annual festival;
- Providing resources, grants and training for photographers so that they can better document and tell stories that are important to their communities;
- Working with nonprofits to help them tell their stories and raise awareness of their issues;
- Promoting powerful, impactful storytelling through our website and printed publications.
We’re always on the lookout for compelling visual storytelling. If you have a personal project or images that fits into our mission, let us know.
