Women Photograph has partnered with Getty Images to award a $10,000 scholarship to a student focused on photojournalism. The scholarship funds can be used for tuition, camera equipment or other education costs during the 2020-2021 school year.
The Women Photograph + Getty Images Scholarship is open to undergraduate and graduate students attending accredited colleges and universities worldwide. It is not required that students be majoring in photojournalism or photography. The scholarship is also open to people pursuing photographic education outside the university setting, such as vocational schools, workshops and other extended educational courses. Determination of eligibility will be at the discretion of Women Photograph and Getty Images.
Applicants should submit a portfolio of 15-20 images, an essay (300 words maximum) outlining their relationship to photojournalism and how this scholarship would advance their photographic education, and proof of enrollment in a university, college, workshop, or other educational institution.
Deadline May 15, 2021
Women Photograph is a non-profit that launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women* and nonbinary visual journalists. The private database includes more than 1,000 independent documentary photographers based in 100+ countries and is available privately to any commissioning editor or organization. Women Photograph also operates an annual series of project grants, a year-long mentorship program, an annual skills-building workshop, and a travel fund to help women and nonbinary photographers access professional development opportunities.
“Our mission is to shift the makeup of the photojournalism community and ensure that our industry's chief storytellers are as diverse as the communities they hope to represent. We believe that inclusion and equity work must be fully intersectional, and are committed to supporting and highlighting photographers across the spectrum of all identities. We are particularly committed to centering the voices of women and nonbinary photographers of color, and pledge that more than half of our funding and opportunities will go to BIPOC photographers.”
They believe that gender is a spectrum. Women Photograph is inclusive of a plurality of femme voices including trans, queer and non-binary people.
