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 your 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 Wednesday, April 26th. Submissions received after this time will not be reviewed. Please note that the 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.

*CANCELLATION POLICY: No refunds if canceling within 7 days of the workshop. Cancellations before the 7-day period will receive a refund of the registration price, not including Eventbrite's service fee.
