Prior to the review, the BDC will ask you to submit your top choices for reviewers ranking from 1 to 10. We will do our best to match you to your first selections.

Throughout the day, you can relax and enjoy yourselves in the BDC’s intimate community garden. The BDC will also provide lunch by Xochimilco, the Bronx’s finest Mexican restaurant.


There are five scholarship spots available for Bronx-based photographers. To apply for the scholarship, please send the following to info@bronxdoc.org:

• A short statement discussing your work and how the portfolio would be beneficial.

• 10 images from any body of work with captions. The images need to be lo-res .jpg files zipped in a folder with your name. The zipped folder should be attached to the email with your statement or sent via WeTransfer.

The scholarship application is due no later than 11PM on Monday, September 26th. Submissions received after this time will not be reviewed. Please note these submissions will not be judged by BDC staff or volunteers; professional photo editors will be making the final decision. Email info@bronxdoc.org if you have any questions.
