ABOUT

ADPP aims to support compelling non-stereotypical visual documentation of important social issues and narratives relevant to the Arab region. In recognition to the power of the image to document, archive, educate, advocate, ADPP will also explore ways by which such produced body of work would reach out to wider audiences and engage with them in a compelling and impactful ways. Photographers may propose to work in a range of non-fiction narrative styles, from classic documentary photography to more experimental visual storytelling, and may propose to include audio and video elements.
