THE Boris Nemtsov Foundation for Freedom and photographer Sergey Ponomarev are accepting applications for the SHOOT grant program, created to support documentary photographers and videographers who were forced to leave their countries.
The organisers say they are interested in documentary photography and video projects about the war in Ukraine and its consequences, which are already underway, but the producers do not have enough resources to complete them.
Preference will be given to projects that present a fresh look and can potentially attract the attention of a worldwide audience.
The maximum grant amount is USD$7,000.
The authors of winning projects will also receive mentorship support.
Documentary photographers and videographers living in exile can apply for this grant.
The deadline for the submission of the application is May 15, 2023. Interested applicants can apply here.
