The Archive of Documentary Arts is part of Duke University’s David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Its mission is to collect, promote, preserve, and provide access to audio, moving images, photography, and text from around the world related to the documentary endeavor for the purpose of inspiring reflection, research, creative expression, and dialogue in this moment, and for generations to come.

The Archive of Documentary Arts is committed to diversifying its collection in order to better reflect the multitude of viewpoints and communities from which work is being made in the documentary arts today. To this end, the ADA offers the following purchase awards to acquire photography in 2015:

  • Award for Documentarians of Color
  • Award for Documentarians Working in North Carolina
  • Award for Emerging Documentarians
  • Award for Innovation in the Documentary Arts
  • Award for Women Documentarians

Selected photographers will receive an honorarium of $4500 to print a body of work which will be acquired by the Archive of Documentary Arts. Selected work will be preserved in the non-circulating collections at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University, and available for use by students, faculty, and independent researchers. The ADA also promotes collection material through exhibition and a variety of public programs.
