The Aftermath Project 2011 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. There is no specific time frame which 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.

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. You MUST inform The Aftermath Project if you have any commercial commitments or contracts related to the project you are proposing, including book deals and exhibitions. Failure to do so on the part of a grant winner will automatically terminate the grant, and the winner will forfeit any funds he/she has not yet received from The Aftermath Project. Two grants for $20,000 each will be given in this cycle, for work to be done in 2011. Three finalists will also be named (there is no monetary award for finalists, but their work is publicized and included in The Aftermath Project publications, etc.).

Requirements of grant winner(s) and finalist(s):

Grant winner(s) and finalists retain all copyrights to their work. Obligations to The Aftermath Project are as follows:

1. Grant winner(s) agree to give The Aftermath Project 12 prints, chosen by the grant winner in collaboration with The Aftermath Project, for its archives at project completion. Prints must be 13x19 inches or larger.

2. Grant winner(s) agree to make at least 30 images from his/her grant work available to The Aftermath Project for inclusion in “War is Only Half the Story, Vol Four,” and/or in commercial publications of anniversary retrospectives of the Aftermath Project. No financial compensation — other than the grant money awarded — will be made for publishing winner(s)’ photos in said publications. The Aftermath Project does not guarantee that any publication will be produced
by The Aftermath Project, alone, or in partnership with other publishers. However, if such publications are made, grant winner(s) will be included in editorial and lay-out decisions. If such publications are made, winner(s) will receive 30 free copies of said publication.

3. In addition, grant winner(s) agree that work created with The Aftermath Project grant may be used for exhibitions created or supported by The Aftermath Project for educational and/or community outreach purposes. Images for such purposes will be chosen by the photographer in collaboration with The Aftermath Project. The winner(s) also agrees that images from his/her grant work may also be used for publicity and press purposes by The Aftermath Project. Any photograph so used by The Aftermath Project will carry the photographer’s credit/copyright line.

4. Finalists agree to allow a 5 to 10 image portfolio of work submitted with their applications to be included in “War is Only Half the Story, Vol Four,” and/or in commercial publications of anniversary retrospectives of the Aftermath Project, if requested by The Aftermath Project. They also agree that their submission photos may be used for exhibitions created or supported by The Aftermath Project for educational and/or community outreach purposes. In both cases, images will be chosen by the photographer in collaboration with The Aftermath Project. The Aftermath Project does not guarantee that any publication will be produced. No financial compensation will be paid to finalists for use of their photos in such publications, but each finalist will receive 10 free copies of said book if it is published. Finalists also agree that images from his/her grant work may be used for publicity and press purposes by The Aftermath Project. Any photograph so used by The Aftermath Project will carry the photographer’s credit/copyright line.

5. Grant winner(s) AND finalists agree to donate two, signed prints of the same image to the Aftermath Project to be used in raising funds for “War is Only Half the Story, Vol Five” (featuring the work of the 2011 grant winner and finalists).

NOTE: If any compensation is available for photographs by winners or finalists for use of their images in exhibitions or press/publicity, The Aftermath Project will forward those funds to the photographers as soon as they have been received, or will put the photographer directly in touch with the organization making payment. As part of the mission of The Aftermath Project to raise awareness about aftermath issues, every effort will be made to disseminate information about the work of grant winner(s) and finalists. The Project’s goal is to create an ever-widening network of individuals committed to these issues, and to help create, whenever possible, opportunities for winners and finalists to share their work with as many people as possible.

Deadline for application submissions:
November 1, 2010

Eligibility: The Aftermath Project is open to working photographers world-wide who are interested in creating work that helps illuminate aftermath issues, and encourages greater public understanding and discussion of these issues.

No entry fee

    i'm not a professional photographer and i don't go for contests or grants, but i like to stay informed about opportunities like this one.
    this grant sounds like one of the best out there for photojournalists.


    Alex Williams says

    Can amateurs/enthusiasts apply? It might be a whole new entry level for aspiring photojounalists....


    Myriam says

    It looks like any photojournalist or documentary photographer or serious amateurs can apply.

    She told me she just didn’t see herself as a leader and didn’t realize that other people at the school saw her as a leader as well
