Getty Images Reportage Grant: COVID-19 Impact (up to $5,000)

Deadline: May 16, 2020

Applications are open for the Getty Images Reportage Grant: COVID-19 Impact. Getty Images grants program enables photographers to bring attention to significant social and cultural issues, and reach new creative heights.

For over 15 years, the Getty Images editorial grants program has supported independent photographers in telling in-depth stories of personal and journalistic importance. Their grant recipients have come from dozens of different countries, producing ambitious photoessays from even more.

This year, the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent travel restrictions have presented many such photographers with immense obstacles to where and how they work. But, as disruptive as it has been, it also presents the opportunity for photojournalists to show the wide-ranging impact of the pandemic on their own communities.


This year’s Reportage Grants Program has been structured to offer eight awards of $5,000 each to photographers reporting stories related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


  • Open to photographers around the world;
  • They should be reporting stories related to the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Particular consideration will be given to those working in their own cities or immediate regions.


Smart photojournalism is carried out safely, and applicants are asked to consider their health and that of their communities when conducting their work. Please also abide by local and national laws governing how journalists work and travel amid quarantine restrictions.
