I am truly delighted to be working closer with The Royal Photographic Society (The RPS). Founded in 1853, for more than a century The RPS has existed to promote photography and image-making and to support photographers in realising their potential, irrespective of their level of knowledge, equipment or skills.

We all believe that photojournalism is a powerful tool for telling compelling social, political and cultural stories. We also understand that creating and managing world-class photography assignments requires time, freedom, support and considerable resources.
That is why Getty continue to offer the Grants for Editorial Photography, which in 2015 will provide five total grants of $10,000 each to photojournalists pursuing projects of personal and journalistic significance.
Since its launch in 2004, the Grants for Editorial Photography celebrate and support independent photojournalism, evidenced by the many dynamic and compelling projects completed over the years. You can view the works of previous grant winners here.
The Grants for Editorial Photography will be awarded through their annual application proposal process, with applications being accepted beginning April 1, 2015 and will require a 500 word summary of the project proposal, a short bio, and 20-25 images. Specific uploading instructions will be made available when the application portal is opened on April 1.
