Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP) > Call for applications
The Prince Claus Fund (PCF) and the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) in partnership with the Magnum Foundation (MF) in New York, USA, are organising the fourth cycle of the Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP).
The ADPP is a program jointly funded by the Prince Claus Fund and the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, targeting creative documentary photographers in the Arab region. Up to 10 grantees will be selected to receive financial and professional support to complete their proposed photography projects. The grantees are expected to dedicate sufficient time to their projects for the duration of the grant period and will be required to hand over the agreed-upon deliverables on time.
The focus of the Arab Documentary Photography Program is to support compelling non-stereotypical and unconventional visual documentation of important social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. In recognition of the image’s power to document, educate and advocate, the ADPP will also explore ways by which such a body of work can reach out to wider audiences and engage with them in compelling and impactful ways. Photographers may propose to work in a range of nonfiction narrative styles, from classic documentary photography to more experimental visual storytelling, and may propose to include audio and video elements.
Deadline: 1 April 2017
