Deadline: 31 October 2014
World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch have jointly announced a call for applications for the Fourth Tim Hetherington Grant. Photojournalists, documentary photographers and multimedia producers around the world are invited to apply for it.
The grant, worth 20,000 euro, is intended for the support of a visual storyteller in completing an existing project on a human rights theme.
The grant celebrates the legacy of photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington, who was killed when a group of journalists came under fire during fighting between rebels and General Gaddafi’s forces in Misrata, Libya in April 2011. Tim Hetherington was committed to finding new ways to tell compelling stories about politics, conflict and the human experience, and to relay these stories to a wide audience.
A panel of judges reviews the applications for qualities that defined Tim’s career. Successful candidates present work on a human rights theme 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 subjects. The Tim Hetherington Grant is a joint initiative of World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch, with the support of Tim’s parents, Alastair and Judith Hetherington.
