Reuters Giving $5K Grants to Develop Diverse Next Generation of Photojournalists

Posted by on Tuesday September 5, 2017 | Photojournalism

International news agency Reuters will launch a new series of photojournalism grants this week at Visa pour l‘Image international festival of photojournalism in Perpignan, France. In an effort to identify and aid “a diverse new generation of photojournalists,” Reuters will give up to eight $5,000 US grants this year to help photographers work on projects, the agency said in an announcement.

“Reuters welcomes diverse candidates from all backgrounds and is excited to work with emerging talents who can tell stories from new perspectives,” the agency said. The applicants do not need to be currently working as professional photojournalists to qualify, “but must demonstrate an ability to successfully conceive and complete their grant project.”

Reuters will distribute the work of grant recipients, and Yannis Behrakis, Reuters photojournalist and senior editor, special projects will mentor grant recipients as they undertake their projects.
