Photojournalism: Tim Hetherington Grant Application Opens

World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch are now accepting applications for the second Tim Hetherington Grant.

Created to celebrate the legacy of photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington, the “annual grant, worth €20,000, will be awarded to a photographer to complete an existing project on a human rights theme. The judges will look for the qualities that defined Tim’s career when reviewing the applications: work that operates on multiple platforms and in a variety of formats; that crosses boundaries between breaking news and longer-term investigation; and that demonstrates a consistent moral commitment to the lives and stories of the photographic subjects.”

Last year, Stephen Ferry used the grant for Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict.

Applications are due November 15 and can be found here.
