Getty Images has awarded grants of $10,000 each to five photographers to support personal documentary projects of “universal importance,” the photo agency announced on September 7. The editorial grant winners are:

Alejandro Cegarra for “Living with Hugo Chavez’s Legacy”
Paula Bronstein for “The Cost of War”
Antonio Faccilongo for “Habibi”
Barbara Peacock for “American Bedroom”
Alessandro Penso for “The Deal”

“The projects selected explore a range of complex and thought-provoking subjects and we are thrilled…to support such talent as they continue to shed light on some of the most moving and significant moments of our time,” Getty Image VP of News Hugh Pinney said in a prepared statement.

The agency says the editorial grant winners were selected from 480 applications submitted by photographers from 75 countries. Jurors included Alice Gabriner, international photo editor at Time Magazine; photographer Damon Winter of The New York Times; Chelsea Matiash, photo editor at The Intercept; Thomas Simonetti, photo editor at The Washington Post; and Jean-Francois LeRoy, director of the Visa pour l’Image festival.

Calvert, Jonathan Togovnik, Matt Eich, Javier Arcenillas, Mojgan Ghanbari, Krisanne Johnson, and others.
