Applications will be accepted until Friday, June 8. We invite you to apply and share at!

Four grants of $5,000 each, totaling $20,000, will be awarded to two commercial creative photographers and two editorial filmmakers who capture the visual narrative of underrepresented ethnic communities such as African American, Caribbean, South Asian, Arab, Indigenous or Latinx for example, and use their medium to progress visual representation. In addition to financial remuneration, recipients will also receive mentoring support and guidance from Getty Images and ARRAY. The winners will be selected based on their project submissions, focusing on the quality of their cinematography, photographic skills
and how their work is used to drive authenticity and inclusion. #grants #photography #filmmaking #deadline #artist #gettyimages #arraynow
