October 2014

World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch are inviting all photojournalists, documentary photographers and multimedia producers around the world to apply for the fourth annual Tim Hetherington Grant, a fund designed to support a photographer in completing an existing project on a human rights theme.

The grant – worth €20,000 – is intended for the support of a visual storyteller in completing an existing project on a human rights theme. The entries close on 31 October and the announcement of the recipient will be made in New York City on 10 December. Last year's winner, Olivier Jobard, used the Grant to complete his project showing the human face of migration.

World Press Photo acting Managing Director Maarten Koets, commenting on the announcement, said: “We share a commitment to the legacy of Tim Hetherington and are eager to expand the impact of the grant set up in Tim’s name. By opening up the entries to all visual storytellers, we offer an opportunity to everyone with an innovative approach to finish work on an important story.”

Carroll Bogert, Human Rights Watch’s Deputy Executive Director for External Relations, says, “We are thrilled to welcome another round of submissions for the Tim Hetherington Grant, and hope it will help to stimulate discussion and production of human rights reportage throughout the journalism profession.”


How to enter?

The application process is open to all professional visual journalists worldwide and is free to enter. The deadline for completing the application form and transferring work is 31 October 2014, 23.59 CET. For more information and for submitting an application for the grant, please click here. The name of the recipient of the grant will be announced in New York City on 10 December.


Judging committee

The judging will take place at the Human Rights Watch headquarters. Human Rights Watch and World Press Photo representatives will join a panel of judges to select the beneficiary of the grant. The panel will be announced later this year.

The judges review the applications for qualities that defined Tim’s career. Successful candidates present work on a human rights theme that operates on multiple platforms and in a variety of formats; that crosses boundaries between breaking news and longer-term investigation; and that demonstrates a consistent moral commitment to the lives and stories of the subjects. According to World Press Photo, ‘Human rights photography should do more than present a tableau of suffering, but attempt to identify the perpetrator and point the way toward change.’

About The Tim Hetherington Grant

The Tim Hetherington Grant is a joint initiative of World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch, with the support of Tim’s parents, Alastair and Judith Hetherington. It was created to celebrate the legacy of the photojournalist and filmmaker Tim Hetherington, killed in Misrata, Libya in April 2011.

The grant has enabled recipients Stephen Ferry (2011), Fernando Moleres (2012) and Olivier Jobard (2013) to take their projects to the next stage. With the support of the Tim Hetherington Grant, they were able to approach audiences on multiple platforms, books, booklets, newspapers, websites and exhibitions.
