Tim Hetherington Grant
World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch, for whose publications Tim was a regular contributor, will join a distinguished panel of judges to select the recipient of the first annual 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.
In reviewing the applications, the judges will look for the qualities that defined Tim’s career: 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.
The deadline for applications is 15 October. The selection committee will convene in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and will provide a statement to accompany the publication of the name of the recipient of the grant on 5 November.
