Online Community

Specialty groups maintain online communities, which are valuable forums where colleagues with similar interests and experience can share and exchange ideas and practical information, facilitate open discussion, and disseminate group-related news, resources, questions, job postings, announcements, comments of interest, and general information. Communities are closed lists. Subscription to them is benefit of membership in the specialty group. All new members of the group are automatically subscribed to the community. All posts are archived and are searchable.

Grants & Stipends

The Photographic Materials Group offers small grants to encourage scholarship, research, exchange, and publication within the field and related communities. Projects demonstrating immediate dissemination through publication, workshops, and/or public lectures will be given priority. Proposed projects may include a research project or segment thereof, preparation of a manuscript for publication, or organization and implementation of a workshop. Proposals for other projects will be considered if appropriate to the general funding goals. There are 2 rounds of applications per year.  Applications for grants should be submitted to the PMG Chairperson, care of AIC, on or before March 15th and October 15th of each year.

We are current revising our Professional Development Stipend and are not accepting applications at this time. Please check back for more information.
