Call for Proposals: Arab Documentary Photography Program

The Prince Claus Fund (PCF) and the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) in partnership with the Magnum Foundation (MF) in New York, USA, are delighted to announce the fourth cycle of the Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP).

Please note that applications go through the AFAC website and the deadline for applications is 1 MAY 2017.

The ADPP is a program jointly funded by the Prince Claus Fund and the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, targeting creative documentary photographers in the Arab region. The fourth call for proposals opened on 1 February 2017 and a jurors’ committee comprised of Arab and international experts will select up to 10 grantees to receive financial and professional support to complete their proposed photography projects. The grantees are expected to dedicate sufficient time to their projects for the duration of the grant period and will be required to hand over the agreed-upon deliverables on time.

The focus of the Arab Documentary Photography Program is to support compelling non-stereotypical and unconventional visual documentation of important social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. In recognition of the image’s power to document, educate and advocate, the ADPP will also explore ways by which such a body of work can reach out to wider audiences and engage with them in compelling and impactful ways. Photographers may propose to work in a range of nonfiction narrative styles, from classic documentary photography to more experimental visual storytelling, and may propose to include audio and video elements.

ADPP’s objectives are:

1. To raise the level of creative documentary photography in the Arab region;

2. To train photographers and expand their approaches to visual storytelling;

3. To share strong visual narratives from the Arab region regionally and internationally; and

4. To explore wider access to documentary photography and a more active engagement with its audiences

The tentative schedule for the fourth cycle is as follows:

- 1 February 2017: Open the call for proposals

- MAY 2017: Deadline for proposals

Please consult the Grant Guidelines before applying.
