The Aftermath Project announces the opening of a new photography competition, which aims to provide grants to talented photographers within the theme of the Aftermath competition.

Competition Theme:

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. There is no specific time frame that defines “aftermath,” although in general, The Aftermath Project seeks to support stories which are no longer being covered by the mainstream media, or which have been ignored by the media. In general, conflict should be over for a situation to be deemed an “aftermath.” There are specific cases, however, where conflict may have continued for so long, or be the result of an aftermath situation, that they will be considered to be within the scope of The Aftermath Project.

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. The Aftermath Project is open to working photographers worldwide who are interested in creating work that helps illumine aftermath issues and encourages greater public understanding and discussion of these issues. 
  2. Employees and directors of The Aftermath Project and their immediate families are NOT eligible to apply for funding. Advisory board members and their immediate families are NOT eligible to apply for funding. Grant application judges and their immediate families are NOT eligible to apply for funding in the year that judges help choose grantees. 
  3. Only those submissions including all required materials will be considered for entry.

Grant Amount:

Grant winner will be paid 25,000 USD, as well as a chance to exhibit the work at a photo festival to be announced on a later date.

Required Documents:

  1. A signed application form saved as a PDF or jpg file.
