Sana:

This is fantastic, but can preference go to local photographers, or the prize split in two? If we truly are interested in “bettering the world” we need to start by empowering people to tell the story of their own communities, especially in the Gaza where people like Fady Adwan have done such an amazing job covering recent events…and the community so needs resources like these grants.

Andy, you are so right. It would be like kicking local photographers to give this money an international.
