Presented by Getty Images & Instagram
Featuring three photographers who use Instagram to share the important stories of underrepresented communities around the world
At Getty Images, we believe that images have the power to move the world, and that photography is a compelling tool for telling social, political and cultural stories. That is why we are proud to announce, in collaboration with Instagram, the inaugural Getty Images Instagram Grant.
The purpose of this grant is to support photographers using Instagram to document stories from underrepresented communities around the world. We recognize that Instagram has introduced new opportunities for emerging voices, outside the mainstream media, to create and share projects of social importance. This grant provides financial support and mentorship to amplify their impact.
A total of three grants of $10,000 each will be awarded. Winners will not only receive a cash grant, they will also have the opportunity for mentorship with an award-winning Getty Images photographers.
