Chennai Photo Biennale Foundation in collaboration with the Ffotogallery/Diffusion Festival, with the support of the British Council and Wales Arts International launched an Open Call in 2020 for a grant for resident photographers and lens based artists from India and Wales to submit proposals on the theme – Imagining the Nation State.

The applications were reviewed and selected by a noted jury of artists and curators - Monica Narula, Raqs Media Collective and Sheba Chhachhi from India, and Damarice Amao - Assistant Curator of Photography, Centre Pompidou from France along with the organisers, Shuchi Kapoor from Chennai Photo Biennale Foundation and David Drake from Ffotogallery/Diffusion, Wales.

This collaboration between CPB Foundation and Ffotogallery enabled a total of five grant awards instead of the original plan of four to photographers/lens-based artists for the production of work on their proposed projects, which received their first physical exhibition in October 2021 as part of the fifth biennial edition of Diffusion: Wales International Festival of Photography.
