Getty Images is now accepting applications for its 2011 Grants for Editorial Photography. Five grants of $20,000 apiece will be awarded to support photographers pursuing “projects of personal and journalistic significance.” The deadline to apply is May 1, and winners will be announced in September.
The judges for this year’s grants are photographer Tom Stoddart; Cyril Drouhet, director of photography, Le Figaro; Emanuelle Mirabelli, photo editor for Marie Claire Italy; Jon Jones, director of photography, The Sunday Times of London; and Jean-Francois LeRoy, director general of the Visa Pour L’Image festival in Perpignan, France.
This year, the grant is open to photographers who work as part of a team. Past winners of Getty Grants for Editorial Photography include Stefano de Luigi, Darcy Padilla, Brenda Ann Kenneally, Alex Majoli, Rena Effendi and Lynsey Addario.
Getty is also offering a grant for students. The student grant includes no prize money; instead the winning student is featured on Reportage by Getty Images. For information on the student grant, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
