At first he used only their own funds, but then won World Press for one of his photos. In addition, he is a Fellow of the grant Revela Oleiros in 2008 (the money went for the photo shoot in the Congo) and Alexia Foundation grant in 2009.
At the recent Festival of Photojournalism Visa POUR L'Image, Astrada received a grant from the Getty Foundation in the amount of $ 20,000, which will allow him to complete his project.
