$40,000 in grants from Getty Images to cover COVID-19

Getty Images has recently announced the launch of its latest Reportage Grant series centred around COVID-19-related stories. The grants, of $5,000 each, will be awarded to eight photographers safely reporting stories related to the COVID-19 pandemic, with particular consideration given to those working in their home locations or immediate regions.

Understanding that COVID-19 and the resulting travel restrictions have presented photographers worldwide with immense obstacles as to how and where they work, as well as opportunities to convey the wide-ranging impact of the pandemic and also inform the public, Getty Images wishes to support them in their efforts to do so safely. Health and safety remain a priority, and Getty Images asks that all applicants abide by local and national laws governing how journalists work and travel amid quarantine restrictions.

Recipients will be selected from a global pool of submissions. The deadline for submissions is Friday, May 15 (midnight, EST).
