Creation Grant Projects

Apr 30, 2022 | Articles & Resources, News & Happenings

During the Covid-19 pandemic, we launched the Creation Grants initiative to provide micro-grants to photographers in Asia, many of whom were facing severe loss of job opportunities and financial income. 

Over three rounds, we were able to provide micro-grants to 12 photographers from eight Asian countries. Selected through an independent jury, and supported through a mixture of our own funds and generous donations from individuals, about USD6000 was disbursed during this period.

  • Arabella Paner (Philippines) “I thought I saw a falling star softly land on my shoulder”
  • Ivan Darski (Indonesia) “Shadow of the Unseen”
