Deadline: 6 December 2019
Photographers documenting the aftermath of conflicts can apply for a grant.
The Aftermath Project’s mission is to support photographic projects that 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, to address the lingering wounds of war while struggling to create new avenues for peace. Grant proposals should reflect an understanding of this mission.
Proposals may relate to the aftermath of numerous kinds of conflict, not just international wars. The conflict may have been at the
community level — for example, violence between rural ethnic groups or an urban riot in an industrialized country. It may have been a regional one, such as a rebel insurgency, or it may have been a full-scale war.
Your application must include a project proposal and a portfolio of no more than 30 images.
