Getty Images #ShowUs Grant 2021 (Up to $5,000)

Deadline: April 30, 2021

Applications are invited for the Getty Images #ShowUs Grant 2021. The #ShowUs Grant provides financial support and mentorship to artists who are committed to authentically representing women, female‑identifying and non‑binary individuals in commercial photography and videography.

Project #ShowUs is a global library of images created by women devoted to shattering beauty stereotypes around the world. Created in partnership with Dove and female photography collective Girlgaze this global collection is 100% powered by women, showing women as they are, not as others believe they should be.

The #ShowUs Grant is dedicated toward promoting the work of emerging artists and is open to women, female identifying and non‑binary commercial photographers and videographers. Judges will be looking for submissions which represent Leadership in all its forms – this can be mother leading/teaching daughter, friend guiding friend, or women in professional leadership settings. Applicants are requested to conduct shoots safely and following local guidelines around social distancing. Judges will give particular consideration to photographers and videographers who are telling local stories of women in their communities.

Benefits

  • Two $5,000 prizes awarded.
  • The successful recipients will be invited to license their award‑winning content through GettyImages.com and iStock.com at a 100% royalty rate for imagery created within their proposed project (please see T&Cs for details). This is subject to you entering into a separate agreement with Getty Images allowing for the distribution of your content.
  • Winners who choose to license their imagery will receive guidance and mentorship from one of Getty Images’ award‑winning Art Directors, as well as a feature on the Getty Images Creative Insights website, in addition to promotion on relevant Getty Images and iStock social channels.
