PAYING IT FORWARD

APhotoADay’s Backyard Storytelling Grant is a $4,000 prize awarded to a visual storyteller to aid in a project within 500 miles - or roughly one tank of gas - of the journalist’s home. Our goal is to reward and encourage finding the extraordinary in the ordinary, while also focusing on one's community. Many times the best stories - the ones that resonate the most - are the ones that hit closest to home.

Past winners are: Tommaso Rada (2016) and Greg Kahn (2015).

You can read more about their winning proposals, see images, and read the judges' comments on our blog.

The 2018 APAD Backyard Storytelling Grant will open for a call for entries on Friday, July 6, 2018.
