The Lit List at Photoville NYC!

$4,555 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 117 people in 2 months
Created July 26, 2018
The Lit List proudly showcases the work of 30 must-watch image-makers who have flown under the industry’s radar because a white, cisgender, heteronormative, patriarchal lens dominates our world’s visual histories. 

The Lit List, by the Authority Collective , in partnership with Diversify Photo , is committed to recognizing and awarding the outstanding work of photographers who are womxn, femmes, trans, non-binary people of color, or otherwise underrepresented artists.

Nominations came from other photographers as well as photo editors, reps, and visual, art and creative directors. The jury consists of industry decision-makers of color and allies — including Zora J Murff of Strange Fire Collective, Paloma Shutes of California Sunday magazine, Siobhán Bohnacker of The New Yorker, and Noelle Flores-Theard of Magnum Foundation.

We’re excited to present the work of the Lit List winners at this year’s Photoville NYC.

We’re aiming to raise $7,500 to cover our costs for Photoville, which include: $4,000 for our container space, $1,500 for printing costs and other on-site expenses, $500-$2,000 to help aid with travel for board members and a few of the Lit List finalists.

Anything more will go towards the Authority Collective’s starting costs and resources for our members.

If you’re able to give $30 or more by FRIDAY, AUGUST 17, you’ll receive a limited edition Authority Collective sticker and we’ll list your name as a Partner on our website and our promo postcards that we’ll distribute at Photoville NYC. 

That said, every bit counts.

If you’re not able to help financially at this time, that’s all right! We’re incredibly grateful for your friendship and support in general. Please consider subscribing to our newsletter for Authority Collective updates , and following us on Instagram , Twitter  and Facebook.

Hello friends,

Thank you for supporting the Authority Collective!

With your financial contributions via GoFundMe and additional support from Mastin Labs, we were able to print and exhibit the work of the inaugural Lit List finalists at Photoville last month in New York City, provide travel stipends to two of our Lit List finalists, print business cards and promos to connect with the greater Photoville community, and organize a team retreat to vision the next steps for the Authority Collective.

We also hosted 14 artist talks at our container, and a meet-up for the Lit List finalists and the Authority Collective community at Cafe Erzulie in Brooklyn.

We are keeping our GoFundMe up until the end of this week to raise additional funds for our startup costs, website hosting, additional Lit List and Authority Collective artist talks and events, and to help us get a leg up on upcoming projects. The last day to contribute is Friday, Oct. 5.

**Please consider making an additional contribution or sharing our GoFundMe page with more folks in your network before Friday!**

If you donated more than $30 by August 17, please send us your mailing address so we can we send you an Authority Collective sticker. Please respond with your mailing address by Oct. 15.

We have a lot up our sleeves and will need your support again in the future. Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and to sign up for our monthly newsletter for updates and work from the Authority Collective community. https://www.authoritycollective.org/newsletter

Thank you so much for your support.
