Photographers who work in conflict situations can apply for a grant.
The Aftermath Project is offering a US$25,000 grant for photographers who tell the other half of the story of conflict — the story of what it takes for individuals to learn to live again, to rebuild destroyed lives and homes, to restore civil societies and to address the lingering wounds of war while struggling to create new avenues for peace.
Proposals may relate to the aftermath of numerous kinds of conflict. Examples include violence between rural ethnic groups, an urban riot in an industrialized country, a rebel insurgency or full-scale war. There is no specific time frame that defines “aftermath,” although the project generally seeks to support stories that are no longer being covered by the mainstream media or which have been ignored by the media.
Entries should include an explanation of the specific aftermath issues related to the project being proposed, as well as an overview of the applicant’s plans for covering the story during the course of the grant year.
The deadline is Dec. 6.
