WHAT THE GRANT IS ABOUT
“Dedicated to the memory of Daniele and entirely supported by his family, the Grant represents a unique opportunity to support emerging photographers in making their first steps in the industry. The submission is free and open to photographers with a maximum of five years of professional experience, coming from any country in the world, whose work explores the African identity, engaging with the African continent or its diaspora.”
Impact rather than money
the Daniele Tamagni Grant addresses the creation
of a long-term value proposition, focused on Photojournalism and Education.
Elevating Creativity to a Profession, thanks to the scholarship the recipient of the Grant will be in the position to become a positive agent of change, shining new light over the evolution of the African identity.
The Grant, thanks to its partners and the panel members, creates the opportunity of important global references in the Photo and Media industry, including important publishers and galleries.
Enable young photographers to develop projects and a career which share Daniele’s aims: to shine a light on social groups and individuals who contribute to social, cultural and political change through their creativity, the search of respect and freedom, the strong identity with their everyday context, often challenging an adverse environment.
Foster confidence to a new generation of African minded Photographers, encouraging them to explore the identity beyond political consciousness and the layers of stereotypes of old fashioned media.
Promote the African Style as an Identity, also intended as a tool of communication and self empowerment.
