“Launched in 2004, the Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography are designed to help professional photojournalists create “compelling social, political and cultural stories.”

Each year, a jury selects five photographers to receive $20,000 to fund projects of personal and journalistic significance. This year, one of the grants will be awarded, in conjunction with The Chris Hondros Fund, for “extraordinary news coverage of a current event,” says Getty Images.

The deadline for entries if 01 May, at which time a jury that includes the directors of photography at Time Magazine and The New Yorker, as well as Barbara Giffin of Turner Broadcasting Systems, photographer Stephanie Sinclair and Jean-François Leroy of Visa Pour l’Image, will select the five winners “taking into account the caliber of portfolio, project merit and professional ability.

The winners will be announced in a ceremony at this year’s Visa Pour l’Image photojournalism festival in Perpignan.
