Tim Hetherington Grant Calls for Applications

World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch invite press photographers and photojournalists around the world to apply for the third Tim Hetherington Grant. 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 subjects.

Fernando Moleres received the second Tim Hetherington Grant in 2012 for his project “Waiting for an opportunity”.

Grant Details

The Tim Hetherington Grant is a joint initiative of World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch and was created to celebrate the legacy of the photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington killed in Misrata, Libya in April 2011. The selection committee will convene in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and will announce the name of the recipient of the grant on November 11th.

Grant award: €20,000
Submission due: October 17, 2013
