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.
