We believe that photojournalism is a powerful tool for telling compelling social, political and cultural stories. We also understand that creating and managing world-class photography assignments requires time, freedom, support and considerable resources.
Since its launch in 2005, the Grants for Editorial Photography celebrate and support independent photojournalism, evidenced by the many dynamic and compelling projects completed over the years.
The Grants for Editorial Photography will be awarded through our annual application proposal process, with applications being accepted beginning April 1, 2013 and will require a 500 word summary of the project proposal, a short bio, and 20-25 images.
Grants will be awarded by independent judges, each selected by Getty Images for his or her expertise and industry experience. Selection will be based on judges’ determination of applicant’s ability to execute the submitted project with compelling visual narrative in documentary feature format, taking into account the caliber of portfolio, project merit and professional ability.
