The Aftermath Project

A while ago I received an email from Sara Terry who works for The Aftermath Project. The project ~ whose slogan is War Is Only Half the Story ~ runs an annual grant competition that is, in their own words, " open to working photographers worldwide covering the aftermath of conflict." The project also publishes and exhibits the work of grantees. Kathryn Cook, whose image I've lifted above, was a 2008 recipient of Aftermath Project funding. Applications for the 2010 competition are due November 2nd - you can find details and application materials at the project web page.
P.S.: (9 October) ~ I want to clear up one possible misconception. Sara works on but not for the Aftermath Project in the sense that she established the organization and puts in lots of time and effort, but does not get paid. The project has a small budget and no employees.
