Getty Images, a leading visual content creator and marketplace, is relaunching its annual photojournalism grant. Aimed to support photographers whose work sheds light on the important issues of our time, Getty Images’ new editorial grants are dedicated to photojournalists and organizations that enable documentary photography.
“We are so grateful to the photographers and videographers who, every day, share with us the most moving and important moments of our time,” said Pancho Bernasconi, Vice President of Global News at Getty Images. “It is a real honor for us to be able to support and encourage them further, providing funds to shine a light on major thought-provoking issues. Questions that, without resources, could remain invisible.”
