The Magnum Foundation Emergency Fund is proud to announce the recipients of the 2013 EF grants. The fund began in 2009 and grants photographers from around the world to support anticipatory work that sheds light on under-reported issues and communities. 

This year’s winners are:

Adam Nadel for Getting the Water Right
Alex Welsh for Home of the Brave
Giulio Piscitelli for From There to Here
Jehad Nga for Unmasking the Unthinkable
Mari Bastashevski for State Business
Olga Kravets for Radicalization
Rafal Milach for The Winners
Tanya Habjouqa for Occupied Pleasures
Philippe Dudouit for The Dynamics of Dust
Tomoko Kikuchi for The River

This year’s grantees were selected from a pool of 100 photographers nominated by 15 international photo editors, curators, publishers and educators. These projects address a range of pressing issues including human impact on one of the world’s most delicate ecosystems, systemic roots of violence in vulnerable communities, investigation of human rights abuses, and post-arab spring immigration flows.
