World Press Photo & Human Rights Watch: inaugural Tim Hetherington Grant awarded to Stephen Ferry

Amsterdam, November 2011

World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch set up a joint initiative The Tim Hetherington Award to honour and celebrate Tim's life, his use of media, methodology, his commitment to finding new ways to tell compelling stories of politics, conflict, the human experience and communicating these to a wide audience. The award of an annual grant of $20, 000 was made in November 2011 to the American photographer, Stephen Ferry, for his project “Violentology: A manual of the Columbian Conflict”, which was chosen by a selection committee from 222 applicants of 56 nationalities.
