Fourth annual Tim Hetherington Grant (photography)
World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch are delighted to invite all photojournalists, documentary photographers and multimedia producers around the world to apply for the fourth annual Tim Hetherington Grant. The grant, worth 20,000 euro, is intended for the support of a visual storyteller in completing an existing project on a human rights theme.
The Tim Hetherington Grant is a joint initiative of World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch, with the support of Tim’s parents, Alastair and Judith Hetherington. It was created to celebrate the legacy of the photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington, killed in Misrata, Libya in April 2011.
The grant has enabled recipients Stephen Ferry (2011), Fernando Moleres (2012) and Olivier Jobard (2013) to take their projects to the next stage. With the support of the Tim Hetherington Grant, they were able to approach audiences on multiple platforms, books, booklets, newspapers, websites and exhibitions.
Deadline: 31 October
