Doug Pensinger Photography Fund 2022

A $5,000 grant, to be spent on career development


The Doug Pensinger Photography Fund supports emerging and early-career sports photographers.

The DPPF is committed to promoting inclusivity and diversity and to providing free merit-based access to its programs. There is no application fee and the process is open to all aspiring sports photographers.

The process is not limited to U.S. citizens, although international applicants should be aware that paid transportation to the Sports Photography Gathering is limited to U.S. domestic airfare and that the DPPF is not able to provide support for visa procurement.


7 photographers will each receive:
- A $5,000 grant, to be spent on career development
- Expenses-paid trip to the 2022 DPPF Sports Photography Gathering


Photographers with more than 3 years cumulative paid professional experience are considered beyond the scope of the DPPF’s programs.
