Photojournalists working for social change can apply for a grant.

The Open Society Documentary Photography Project, sponsored by the Open Society Foundations, offers grants to encourage new ways of presenting documentary photography to the public.

Photographers will take an existing body of work on a social justice or human rights issue and devise an innovative way of using that work to create social change.

Projects should include a partnership between a photographer and an organization that combines expertise in documentary photography with experience working on the topic. Five to eight grants of US$5,000 to US$30,000 will be awarded.
