These grants will be given in September this year as part of five grants totaling $100,000 each year to fund, inspire and support the best global talent in photojournalism; two were awarded earlier in February.
Each grant consists of $20,000 plus project execution support from Getty Images editors. While retaining copyright of their imagery, grant recipients also have the option to sign a one-year exclusive rights deal with Getty Images, enabling their grants project imagery to be marketed and available for license to editorial customers.
Applications should include a short written proposal to explain the scope, significance and journalistic merit of the photographerâ€™s chosen project, along with a supporting portfolio from the applicantâ€™s previous work. Applications are accepted until May 15, 2008.
