Cash Prize
These $5,000 grants will support photography projects - either new or in-progress - from visual journalists working in a documentary capacity. Seven grants are available, at least one of which will be earmarked for a nonbinary or transgender photographer.

Four grants, funded by Getty Images' Inclusion Grants program, will be awarded with a specific concentration in subject matter or medium: one for a project with a news focus, one for a sports project, one for an arts & entertainment project, and one for a video or multimedia project. Three additional grants, supported by Nikon USA, will be open to work from any genre - photographers will be asked to self-identify the subject matter or medium of their submission in the application.

Funding may be used to cover the hard costs of reporting, photographers' creative fees, and any other expenses that support the production of new work. This grant is not meant to support the production of books, exhibitions, workshops, or other secondary materials.

Applicants are encouraged to submit a story, rather than singles, as part of the grant application. The images need not be related to the project proposal (but please specify in your application if the images are unrelated to your proposal).
