We are proud and excited to finally announce this year’s Student Media Grant winners, Özge Sebzeci and Brian Otieno! They will be conducting the following photojournalism projects overseas:
Özge has already hit the ground running by documenting the Women’s Day march in Istanbul, and Brian and his partner Anthony will soon be leaving for Dadaab, Kenya. Both grantees are already accomplished photojournalists in their own right, and we look forward to seeing what they are able accomplish during their travels.
Thank you again to all who applied–we were overwhelmingly impressed by the time and thought that clearly went into the 119 proposals we reviewed, and it was encouraging to see so many young people dedicated to conducting photojournalism projects in conflict-affected areas.

The Student Media Grant is made possible by the inspiration and support of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development, and administered by The Center on Conflict and Development at Texas A&M University.
