The Snider Prize is a purchase award given to emerging artists in their final year of graduate study. The winner will receive $2,000, and two honorable mentions will each receive $500 towards the purchase of work to be added to the MoCP's permanent collection. Sponsored by Lawrence K. and Maxine Snider, the Snider Prize forms a part of the museum's ongoing commitment to support new talent in the field of contemporary photography.
Applications open on January 29, 2018 and will be accepted through April 1, 2018. Winners will be announced on May 1, 2018.
