Magnum Foundation announces the Arab Documentary Photography Program!


Magnum Foundation has partnered with the Arab Fund for Arts & Culture and the Prince Claus Fund to launch the Arab Documentary Photography Program (ADPP). The focus of the ADPP is to support compelling non-stereotypical and unconventional visual documentation of important social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. In recognition to the image’s power to document, educate and advocate, the ADPP will also explore ways by which such a body of work will reach out to wider audiences and engage with them in a compelling and impactful ways. Photographers may propose to work in a range of non-fiction narrative styles, from classic documentary photography to more experimental visual storytelling, and may propose to include audio and video elements.



The ADPP Grant is open to Arab applicants living and working in the Arab region, irrespective of age, years of experience, ethnicity, gender or religion. For more grant guidelines, click here.
