Working photographers 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 grant focuses on the 1492/1619 American Aftermaths.
Proposals may relate to a wide interpretation of America’s original sins: the 1492 landing of Christopher Columbus and the assault on Indigenous peoples and their cultures which followed; and the 1619 arrival of the first enslaved Africans and the legacy of slavery based on white supremacy and the treatment of Blacks as chattel.
Photographers don’t have to address both 1492 and 1619 in their projects, but they must have a thoughtful proposal that shows their understanding of how these aftermaths still resonate today. Explorations of Asian and Hispanic experiences are also welcome.
Photographers from underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply. Full-time students are not eligible.
The deadline is Dec. 1.
