The Open Society Documentary Photography Project and Arts and Culture Program announce a grant and training opportunity for documentary photographers from Central Asia, the South Caucasus, Afghanistan, Mongolia, and Pakistan. Approximately 10 cash stipends in the amount of $3,500 USD each will be awarded to photographers to produce a photo essay on a current human rights or social issue in the region.
