UKRAINIAN PHOTOGRAPHERS FUND


We would like to invite you to apply for EEP Berlin’s Research Grant Program for Ukrainian Photographers (RGPUP). For 2022, we had originally planned to release the 2nd issue of the EEP Magazine, but since the war started our main priority has shifted to looking for meaningful ways to support our Ukrainian friends and colleagues. Finally, we decided to transform the magazine’s budget into an art fund in support of Contemporary Ukrainian photographers (CUPHS).

As part of our larger effort to support Ukrainians throughout this horrific time, we decided to focus our efforts on supporting Ukrainian photographers’s ability to continue their work by creating an artists’ fund. The Ukrainian Photographers’ Fund is currently owned by EEP Berlin which has provided an initial sum of €10 000 which are to be given out in the form of research grants of €250, €500 and €1000 to Ukrainian-born photographers currently working in Ukraine. The research grants are given out to photographers, curators and researchers who are working with specific focus on the current situation in Ukraine, or in their respective functions are active in the preservation of Ukraine’s cultural heritage and photographic archives. Due to the immense complexity of each personal situation EEP Berlin has decided not to account for the ways in which the funds are being spent. It is up to each individual to decide on the way they want to use the grant, provided they are agreeing to provide an excerpt of the work funded for the documentation of the funds activities which will be published in a dedicated publication. EEP Berlin would like to pay individual attention to each project and will be happy to periodically receive updates on the work created. These updates can take place in the form of image, video, sound and text files being shared with EEP Berlin. EEP Berlin does not have the right to share, reproduce or publish the artists’ work without their written consent. All funded professionals preserve their full rights over the work produced with the fund’s support.’

To apply for funding please read this and fill out this form. To further support the fund we are organizing an in-house Print Sale of Ukrainian Photography, all proceeds from which are directly channeled to the fund. All activities of the fund will be recorded here.

As a Berlin-based organization dedicated to supporting visual artists from the whole region of Eastern Europe we are working at creating the necessary infrastructure for local Eastern European photography professionals including curators and researchers to work and widen their network. We are currently in the process of creating a non-profit, which will give us the ability to allow for donations and also provide with opportunities to create and acquire funding for collaborative cross-border projects. If you want to know more about this initiative please send us a short e-mail here. If you are a photographer, curator, etc., and you want to participate as a member please read this and fill out this form.
