Grants

Through the World Press Photo grants program, we are enabling photojournalists to tell important stories and creating new opportunities for work.

We help nurture the talent and passion of photojournalists who create stories that inspire a greater understanding of the world around us. World Press Photo grants offer a direct incentive to visual journalists who are facing challenges to produce and disseminate in the current market. We practically support photographers in the creation of new work and offer a platform to share the stories and issues with the world. Below is more information about the ongoing Tim Hetherington Grant and the one-off Follow Your Convictions Grant. More information will be added as we expand the grants program.

Tim Hetherington Grant
The Tim Hetherington Grant is an annual grant awarded to a photographer to finalize a project on a human rights theme. The grant is a joint initiative of World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch and celebrates the legacy of photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington.

Follow Your Convictions Grant
The Follow Your Convictions Grant was a one-off grant offered to the award winners from the 2011 photo contest and presented finally to Italian photographer Davide Monteleone for his project proposal Reversed Seæ.
