Getty Images Creative Grants 2015

In 2015, we are evolving our Creative Grants program to recognize, celebrate and support emerging and established photographic talent.

A total of eight prizes totaling $40,000 will be offered by Getty Images to recognize, celebrate and support emerging and established photographic talent.

Prestige Grants:

Open to All Creative Photographers

In complement to Getty Images Prestige, a hand-picked selection of the world’s most powerful imagery, we are excited to offer the inaugural Getty Images Prestige Grants in 2015. This is a competition open to any creative photographer, offering two grants; a first prize of $15,000 and a second prize of $7,500, awarded to the best ‘dream project’ pitches from photographers who demonstrate creative innovation in their approach and execution.

RePicture Competitions:

Open to Getty Images and iStock Contributors

Two RePicture competitions open to all existing Getty Images and Exclusive iStock photographers will reward the best authentic and emotive images that have the power to challenge stereotypical treatments of key commercial subjects such as age, beauty, ability, etc. Prizes will be awarded as follows: First prize $5,000, second prize $3,000 and a third prize of $1,000.
