Getty Images announces $85,000 in grants for photojournalists

Recently, Getty Images announced the launch of their annual photojournalism grants. The aim of the grants is to help bring attention to significant current issues. The Getty Images Editorial Grants support both individuals and organizations harnessing the power of photojournalism to tell important stories.

There’s a total of $85,000 in grants for photojournalists offered across different areas. The Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography offers three grants of $5,000 each for photographers and videographers reporting stories of forced displacement. Judges will be looking for images that reveal how people around the world have been forced to flee their homes due to persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations, climate change, or events resulting in significant public order. Additional information can be found here.
