The Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP) is a program jointly funded by the Prince Claus Fund (PCF) and The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC), to amplify creative approaches to visual storytelling that challenge conventional narratives about the region.

In the last five years, ADPP has supported fifty photographers from and working in the Middle East and North Africa to produce independent and nuanced stories.

ADPP offers production support for long-term creative projects within a six-month individual mentorship program with photographers Randa Shaath, Eric Gottesman, Tanya Habjouqua, and Peter van Agtmael. Grantees gather in Beirut for two workshops throughout the course of the program.
