The Aftermath Project’s mission is to support photographic projects that tell the other half of the story of conflict-the story of what it takes for individuals to learn to live again, to rebuild destroyed lives and homes, to restore civil societies, to address the lingering wounds of war while struggling to create new avenues for peace.
Grant proposals should reflect an understanding of this mission. Proposals may relate to the aftermath of any kind of conflict, not just armed. The conflict can be at the community levelâ€¹for example, violence between rural ethnic groups, or an urban riot in an industrialized country. The conflict may have been a regional one, such as a rebel insurgency, or it may have been a full-scale war. For the purposes of the grant program, the current situation in Iraq would NOT be deemed an aftermath situation, as the conflict and press coverage continue daily.
Proposals should include an explanation of the aftermath issues related to the specific story being proposed by a grant applicant. They should also include a year-long overview of the applicant’s plans for covering the story. Because The Aftermath Project recognizes the long-term effort required to recover in the aftermath of conflict, grant applicants will be expected to pursue their stories over the course of a year and must demonstrate a plan for doing so. Two grants will be given in 2006, one for $15,000 and one for $20,000.
Deadline: September 1, 2006
