6th Arab Documentary Photography Programme (ADPP)
Through a partnership with the Arab Fund for Art and Culture, together with the Magnum Foundation, the Prince Claus Fund has launched the Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP) in 2014. ADPP supports creative documentary photographers in the Arab region. A jurors’ committee comprised of Arab and international experts will select up to 10 grantees to receive financial and professional support to complete their proposed photography projects.
The focus of the Arab Documentary Photography Programme is to support compelling non-stereotypical and unconventional visual documentation of important social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. In recognition to the image’s power to document, educate and advocate, the ADPP will also explore ways by which documentary photography can reach out to wider audiences and engage with them in a compelling and impactful ways. Photographers may propose to work in a range of non-fiction narrative styles, from classic documentary photography to more experimental visual storytelling, and may propose to include audio and video elements.
This USD 5.000 production grant shall be used to cover the artist fees, any needed production equipment cost, any research costs, travel and other expenses related to the production. Additionally, the grant covers per diem (when on location) and visa fees associated with attendance of the two workshops. (Note: Travel and accommodation costs related to the workshops will be covered directly by ADPP). Grant funds will be used solely for the undertaking of the described photography project and not for any other purpose.
Deadline: 1 May 2019
