About:

For t he se cond time, Action Against Hunger is offering a multimedia grant with the title of Grant for a New Humanitarian Perspective. By "humanitarian", we mean taking humans into account and supporting them to ensure access to the fundamental rights to which all individuals are entitled from birth. By "a new humanitarian perspective" we mean a more inclusive, equal, solidarity-oriented human perspective. The aim of the grant is to encourage reflection on the future of humanitarian imagery, in order to imagine its future development together and foster a new perspective. A perspective that goes beyond the usual reproductions; that is fairer, more inclusive and more ethical; and that allows for a more balanced exchange with the people represented. This grant is intended as an opportunity to explore new narrative and iconographic procedures. We invite anyone looking to submit a project to cut loose from assimilated conventions and to be creative and bold in order to feed collective reflections around the development of multimedia language in the humanitarian and social sphere. As well as highlighting the work of content creators, this grant seeks to boost the visibility of the people suffering – and of their experiences – in the places where Action Against Hunger operates. Following a call for applications, the projects will be judged. The projects can be yet to be developed or currently being developed, so there is no need to have already created content to be able to apply for the grant. Action Against Hunger will conduct a preselection process, choosing twenty projects to be submitted to an international, multidisciplinary, diverse jury. This year, the jury will be chaired by Azu Nwagbogu, the internationally-renowned curator, also founder and director of the LagosPhoto Festival. and made up of professionals from the world of photography, videography and media and from the humanitarian sphere, who will choose the winner. The successful candidate will receive a grant worth €10,000 as well as mentorpship from the president of the jury to carry out his/her project, which will be displayed in an exhibition from October 2025.
