Getty Images has been offering “Grants for Good” for students and photojournalist since 2005. The next deadline is May 1 for editorial photography. Will you be submitting an digital image this year? Go ahead….you may be the next photographer awarded the grant.
Of all of my digital images I have taken while visiting Las Vegas….this digital image makes me ponder about the wheelchair bound man with an amputated limb? What is his story? Is he a veteran who fought in the war? How did he end up on the streets begging for money? He was just sitting there in his wheelchair and I don’t recall if he ever looked up at the passerby’s.

We believe that photojournalism is a powerful tool for telling compelling social, political and cultural stories. We also understand that creating and managing world-class photography assignments requires time, freedom, support and considerable resources.
We 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.
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.
