The Aftermath Project, Photography Grant

Deadline: 25 March 2011
Open to: working photographers worldwide covering the aftermath of conflict
Grant: a total of  $65,000 will be awarded

The Aftermath Project is a non-profit organization committed to telling 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, to address the lingering wounds of war while struggling to create new avenues for peace.

The Sahrawi people are the native inhabitants of what is now called Western Sahara.  For the first time, the Aftermath Project is sponsoring a grant competition for a specific aftermath issue – the story of the Sahrawi people.

Winners will be required to submit interim reports by dates designated in award letter and packet, and will receive 40% of their award mid-way through, and the remaining 10% upon delivery of 12 prints at project completion. All grant work MUST be completed by March 31, 2012.

  1. Hello,

    I would like to be cleared on the exact field to deal with here. Am reading with a perception of it being focused on western Sahara (Sahrawi people)

    and then Aftermath of conflict – (un defined) under Eligibility. Iam assuming this means that any conflict from anywhere around Africa.

    Please help me know the exact area to deal with,

    Thank you.

    1. Hi, Arone,

      please, notice that the deadline is over (Deadline: 25 March 2011).
      And I guess the grant is supposed to be for African photographers covering the story of Sahrawi people.
