New York – March 31, 2022: Getty Images, a preeminent global visual content creator and marketplace, has today announced the launch of its annual photojournalism grants. Supporting photographers whose work shines a light on the important issues of our time, the Getty Images Editorial Grants will support both individual photojournalists and organizations which enable documentary photography.
“We are deeply grateful to the photographers and videographers who every day shed light on some of the most moving and significant moments of our time,” said Pancho Bernasconi, VP of Global News at Getty Images. “It is our honor to be able to support and foster this further, by providing funding to bring thought-provoking and important international issues to light – issues that without funding, may otherwise remain unseen.”
