Getty Images Inclusion Scholarships

ABOUT

Issues of diversity and inclusion with the photographic and photojournalism industries are a complex, long-standing and industry-wide concern. While Getty Images has worked hard to source content that represents the world in which we live, as well as actively promoting inclusion within the industry through recruitment and our existing Grants programmes, this is an issue that will not be solved overnight.

In partnership with a selection of the foremost minority photography and journalism associations globally, the new Getty Images Inclusion Scholarships programme aims to support emerging editorial talent within minority groups and offer aspiring photojournalists the support to pursue education that will enable careers within the industry.

In partnership with Women Photograph, Creative Access, National Association of Black Journalists, Asian American Journalism Association and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Getty Images is offering five scholarships of US$10K to be put toward pursuing education and in turn, helping address industry inclusion issues at the entry point – awarding today, for a better, more inclusive tomorrow.

Prizes and benefits

  • 5 x $10K scholarships are available, in partnership with the following organisations: Women Photograph, Creative Access, National Association of Black Journalists, Asian American Journalism Association and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
