Nonprofit Offers $20,000 Grant to Conflict Photographers


As a tribute to photojournalists Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, who were killed in April while covering the war in Libya, the Aftermath Project will be awarding a special, one-time $20,000 grant to a conflict photographer.

The grant will be given to the photographer who best recounts a personal story of how the coverage of war has affected his or her own life. The application deadline is Oct. 1.

The nonprofit will also award a $5,000 honorarium to an applicant who has worked with a conflict photographer and wants to tell a written or visual story about how that work has affected their life.

The Aftermath Project is a nonprofit organization that gives grants to help photographers tell stories about countries and communities affected by war and other armed conflict.
