Josh Begley awarded the 2018 Tim Hetherington Fellowship

© Josh Begley

The Tim Hetherington Trust and the World Press Photo Foundation are pleased to announce that the 2018 Tim Hetherington Fellowship has been awarded to Josh Begley.

Begley is a data artist and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York. Among other achievements, he is the creator of Metadata+, an iPhone app that tracks U.S. drone strikes. The fellowship will support his project on ways of visualising white supremacy in the United States of America.

Stephen Mayes, Director of the Tim Hetherington Trust, said:

“Tim was a huge supporter of World Press Photo and in 2008, the year he won the premiere award, he visited dozens of World Press events around the world not for what it would do for him but for what he saw the organization was doing for others. It is in this spirit that the Tim Hetherington Trust partners with World Press Photo to expand opportunities for the nominated Fellows and even more importantly to learn from them and to share their inspiration with everyone who wants to push beyond the limitations of conventional journalistic practice.”

Maral Deghati, Manager Education of the World Press Photo Foundation, added:

“Josh Begley’s work is singular. It is powerfully imaginative and thought provoking. Josh Begley proves that we can still tell the stories that need to be told, however inaccessible or hidden, by harnessing the power of technology, and by asking the right questions. Through this fellowship we ensure talent is connected to new networks of support so we can support visual storytellers who embrace Tim’s creative attitude.”

Josh Begley reacted to his award:

"I'm thrilled to receive this honor. Many thanks to World Press Photo and the Tim Hetherington Trust. I look forward to the body of work this support will make possible."

About the Tim Hetherington Fellowship

The fellowship is a collaboration between the Tim Hetherington Trust and the World Press Photo Foundation to honor Tim's legacy. Originally a grant, the Tim Hetherington Trust and the World Press Photo Foundation launched a new fellowship in 2016 following consultation with the Hetherington family.

Tim was committed to finding new ways to tell compelling stories about politics, conflict, and the human experience, and to relay these stories to a wide audience. The fellowship, instead of providing funds for an individual project, offers new ways of supporting photographers so they can expand Tim's legacy in new and creative directions.

Together, the World Press Photo Foundation and the Tim Hetherington Trust support beneficiaries by focusing on the opportunities for them to be involved in the media economy, either through support for education or by connecting them to the best international networks.

The fellowship assists visual storytellers by providing access to training or mentorship so they can further their projects and mission. Fellows become part of sustainable network focused on innovative processes and permanent education. The fellows from each year will become part of the network and will play a role in selecting new fellows. The aim is to grow and strengthen a network of multiple skills that provides ongoing support.

The selected fellow will receive support to the value of €5000, to be provided equally by the Tim Hetherington Trust and the World Press Photo Foundation and its partners.

About the Tim Hetherington Trust

About The World Press Photo Foundation

We are a global platform connecting professionals and audiences through trustworthy visual journalism and storytelling. Founded in 1955 when a group of Dutch photographers organized a contest to share their work with an international audience, the competition has grown into the world’s most prestigious photography award and our mission has expanded. We encourage diverse accounts of the world that present stories with different perspectives. We exhibit those stories to a worldwide audience, educate the profession and the public on their making, and encourage debate on their meaning.

The World Press Photo Foundation is an independent, nonprofit organization, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We receive support from the Dutch Postcode Lottery and are sponsored worldwide by Canon.

Announcing the 2018 Joop Swart Masterclass Participants

Joop Swart Masterclass participants

The World Press Photo Foundation is pleased to announce the participants selected for the 2018 Joop Swart Masterclass. The masterclass is the foundation’s flagship education program. It rewards the most talented emerging visual journalists and is designed to support and enhance diversity in visual journalism and storytelling.

Chosen from the 219 candidates nominated in March 2018, the 12 participants and 2 runners-up are:

Mustafah Abdulaziz, USA
Alfredo Bosco, Italy
Sharon Castellanos, Peru
Sabiha Cimen, Turkey
Samar Hazboun, Palestine
Alexandra Rose Howland, USA
Katinka Hustad, Norway
Ksenia Kuleshova, Russia
Philip Montgomery, USA
Leonard Pongo, Belgium
Ashfika Rahman, Bangladesh
Tasneem Sultan, Saudi Arabia
Cansu Yildiran, Turkey (Due to unforeseen circumstances Cansu Yildiran has been deferred to the next edition of the Joop Swart Masterclass. We hereby introduce Alfredo Bosco, the first runner-up, as a 2018 JSM participant.)

Runners-up:
Marie Hald, Denmark

The 2018 Joop Swart Masterclass is the 25th edition of this annual program. It will be held 23 - 29 September 2018 at the World Press Photo Foundation headquarters in Amsterdam. The participants will receive an immersive, hands-on educational experience with five prominent experts, as well as guest speakers, to discuss all aspects of their work and the profession. In preparation for the masterclass, the participants will execute a photo essay on one single theme. The essays will be discussed during sessions with the masters and edited into a publication. The theme and masters will be announced in May 2018.

Selection process

The participants were selected by an independent, international selection committee comprising:

  • Christopher Morris (USA) photographer and co-founder VII Photo Agency
  • Noriko Hayashi (Japan) photojournalist at Panos and former Joop Swart Masterclass participant
  • Anna-Alix Koffi (Ivory Coast/France) creative director-publisher
  • Tanvi Mishra (India) photo-editor
  • Maggie Steber (USA) photographer at VII
  • Alvaro Ybarra Zvala (Colombia/Spain) photographer and filmmaker.

Noriko Hayashi:

“I truly enjoyed looking through all the portfolios from diverse regions of the world during the selection process. It was hard to judge among so many inspiring and promising works. The stories that grabbed my attention were those created through unique personal approaches with a clear vision and a rich visual vocabulary. I participated in the Joop Swart Masterclass three years ago and it was one of the most inspiring experiences in my photography career. I hope this international group of participants will be able to make the most of this unique opportunity, and it will help them grow as photographers and image professionals.”

Alvaro Ybarra Zavala:

“The selection of the twelve participants of the JSM has not been easy. The level of the candidates has been incredibly good. It is very inspiring to see the amount of talent that all the candidates nominated for the JSM have. A talent that promises to bring fresh perspectives to our industry and that proposes new forms of visual narrative within the world of photography. The 12 selected will live a unique opportunity for their professional career as photographers, a very enriching human experience and to whom I wish all the luck of the world.”

Tanvi Mishra:

“Twelve is a small number to choose given the amount of talent one sees amongst the nominees of JSM. Considering that skill is a function of access to opportunity and information, the quality of work varied drastically from one region to another. The selection was done keeping this in mind for a solid class of 2018. It is with that that I keep the hope alive that the future will feature even more JSM students from under-represented countries!”

Christopher Morris:

"Exciting to see such varied talents coming from around the world.  Some with very intriguing visions"


An expanded nominating committee

Committed to education

The World Press Photo Foundation is committed to education. Since the first workshop in Budapest in 1990, we have run programs in Bangladesh, North Africa, the Philippines and Gaza, and masterclasses in Mexico City, Nairobi and Accra. These programs foster both the craft of visual storytelling, good journalistic practice and help create diversity in the profession.

The Joop Swart Masterclass has been organized by the World Press Photo Foundation every year since 1994 and has established itself as one of the most prestigious events of its kind. Its goal is to bring together some of the most experienced individuals in photojournalism with young, promising photographers to share and pass on their knowledge and experience.
