Photography Grant for Conflict Photographers and Translators

Deadline: 1 October 2011
Open to: working photographers and translators  covering the aftermath of conflicts
Grant: up to $20,000

The Aftermath Project was created to help photographers cover the aftermath of conflict, based on the understanding that war is only half the story.

This is a year-long grant to conflict photographers. The subject can be approached in any way – portraits, landscapes, reportage, collaboration with a family of someone who has been killed, anything that explores the personal aftermath of covering war, whether that be PTSD, the aftermath of sexual assault, the aftermath of being wounded.

Along with the grant for photographers, there is also a special $5,000 honorarium for a fixer or translator, who has worked with a conflict photographer, and who wants to tell a story (written or visual) about their own aftermath experience.

Eligibility

The grant is open to conflict photographers, and fixer or translator, who has worked with a conflict photographer, and who wants to tell a story (written or visual) about their own aftermath experience.
