Arab Documentary Photography Program 2024 for Emerging Photographers ($7,000 grant)

The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture and the Prince Claus Fund in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in partnership with the Magnum Foundation in New York City, USA, launched the Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP) in 2014, a program that is jointly funded by AFAC and Prince Claus Fund (in the framework of the Fund’s Mentorship Awards), and supports creative documentary photographers in the Arab region.

Documentary photography sheds light on important neglected and unknown narratives. Over the past nine years, the Arab Documentary Photography Program has been dedicated to supporting unconventional, compelling, non-stereotypical visual documentation of social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. The program has proved itself to be a major springboard to emerging Arab photographers, granting access to the needed resources and adequate professional support to initiate and complete compelling documentary photography projects.

Even so, structural issues remain, and documentary photography practices tend to stand overlooked. With the tenth cycle of the Arab Documentary Photography Program, they commit to continuing the urgent work of providing support to documentary photographers in the region. If you are a documentary photographer who works with creative photography practices in the Arab world and transmits critical and socially engaged local stories, they encourage you to apply for the 2024 cycle of the Arab Documentary Photography Program.

Benefits of Arab Documentary Photography Program

  • The $7,000 production grant is to be used to cover the artist fees, any needed production equipment cost, any research costs, travel, and other expenses related to the production.
  • Additionally, the grant covers per diem (when on location) associated with the attendance of the three workshops. Note: travel and accommodation costs related to the workshops will be covered directly by ADPP. Grant funds will be used solely for the undertaking of the described photography project and not for any other purpose.
