Photographers who work in conflict situations can apply for a grant.
The Aftermath Project is offering a US$20,000 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. 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. 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.
Proposals 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.
A grant winner and finalist are asked to donate two prints toward raising the funds to pay for the photography book, which will be distributed pro bono to an important list of policy makers, educators and curators.
The deadline is Nov. 11.
