Everyday Projects invites applications for the Everyday Projects Grants for Photographers (Photojournalists ) around the World in 2021.
At the core of The Everyday Projects’ mission is a belief in the support of photojournalists from diverse backgrounds as they develop their craft.
Worth of Award
In addition to receiving $6,000 each, the two grantees will receive mentorship for the duration of their project from either Mallory Benedict of National Geographic or Jehan Jillani of The Guardian.
Preference will be given to photographers who have contributed to The Everyday Projects or are members of the African Photojournalism Database.
Priority will be given to supporting projects that align with The Everyday Projects’ approach to storytelling, including:
Stories that defy stereotypical imagery, promote human dignity, and correct misrepresentation.
Projects that are rooted in documentary photography. If your project is outside of what would be considered traditional photojournalism, please explain your process in your application. These could be projects primarily consisting of portraiture, a collaborative project with the people you photograph, mixed media, etc.
Priority will be given to photographers based anywhere in the world who are documenting their own community or region.
