World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch have issued a call for applications for the Second Tim Hetherington Grant. Under this grant, press photographers and photojournalists around the world can apply for support to complete an existing project on a human rights theme.
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 subject
The application process is open to all professional photographers who have participated in a World Press Photo competition between 2008 and 2012. The deadline for applications is 15 November.
