Photography Grants with the Aftermath Project

Deadline: 2 November 2015
Open to: working photographers worldwide
Grant: USD 20,000


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. Proposals may relate to the aftermath of numerous kinds of conflict, not just international wars.

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. 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 — i.e, the proposed timing of trips, etc.


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. Employees and directors of The Aftermath Project, advisory board members, grant application judges and their immediate families are NOT eligible to apply.


For its 10th grant cycle, The Aftermath Project will award a USD 20,000 grant to one photographer and announce several finalists.
