Getty Images believes that photojournalism is a powerful tool for telling compelling social, political and cultural stories. Getty also understand that creating and managing world-class photography assignments requires time, freedom, support and considerable resources.
Since 2005, Getty have awarded five Grants for Editorial Photography annually to professional photojournalists. Each grant provides $20,000, plus editorial, logistical and promotional support. We also award four student grants of $5,000 per year to photojournalism students at accredited schools.
Professional award applicants must be currently engaged as a professional journalist and apply as an individual. This grant will fund new work from both established and up-and-coming photojournalists.
Student award applicants must be under the age of 30 and currently enrolled in photojournalism courses at an accredited college or university.
