– Getty Images grants deadline approaches

Make sure you are preparing your application for the fifth annual Getty Images grant for editorial photography! This is the first year a category for students has been added, in order to “encourage promising photojournalism students throughout the world.”

There will be four awards of $5,000 given in the student category, and five grants each worth $20,000 in the professional category. Qualified students are those under the age of 30 and enrolled full-time in an accredited photojournalism course. To qualify as a professional you must be presently engaged as a professional photojournalist and apply individually.

The deadline to apply is November 15th and winners will be announced in February 2009. The professional awards and two student awards will be given in February and two more student awards will be given in September. There is no fee to apply.
