Filter Photo is a nonprofit festival, exhibition, and educational space in Chicago's West Town neighborhood. We organize the annual Filter Photo Festival, a multi-day celebration of photography that includes workshops, lectures, exhibitions, and portfolio reviews.

The Filter Photo Fellowship for emerging and early-career artists and arts administrators offers a unique experiential opportunity working collaboratively with an established, non-profit arts organization.

The fellowship is designed to foster the professional development of an artist or arts administrator seeking to better understand and develop skills in the workings of a small non-profit.
