Getty Images Grants Program was first established in 2004 with Grants for Editorial Photography, awarding five a year of $20,000 each to fund visionary new work by established and rising photojournalists. Since its inception, 20 photojournalists have been empowered to bring compelling news stories to light, while improving their craft with personally motivated assignments. In 2009, Getty Images is pleased to expand its program with Grants for Good, which enables photographers to produce powerful new imagery for the greater good.
