About

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.
