Please note that this open call is for ADPP Alumni only.

On the occasion of the Arab Documentary Photography Program’s tenth cycle anniversary, we are happy to announce the launch of the Arab Documentary Photography Program Alumni Fellowship.

Recognizing the image's power to document, educate, and advocate, the Arab Documentary Photography Program’s incentive has always been to foster creative photography practices in the Arab world and to encourage the transmission of critical, socially engaged, and local stories. Looking back at nine years of the program, we are convinced that it remains essential for nurturing free expression, amplifying unheard narratives, and raising the level of creative documentary photography in the Arab region and beyond.

However, we recognize that one-time support can only go so far. With the Arab Documentary Photography Program Alumni Fellowship, we commit to accelerating the careers of the ADPP program alumni by providing them with the support and resources they need while facilitating further regional and international exchanges between established and emergent photographers.
