In the latest of its Reportage Grants, Getty Images has announced it will be offering eight separate $5000 grants to photographers who manage to capture Covid-19 stories safely. As such, particular consideration will be given to those working in their home locations or immediate regions.

Recipients will be selected from a global pool of entrants and judged by a panel of photographers, journalists and creatives. Getty Images wishes to make it clear that health and safety remain a priority, and ask that all applicants abide by local and national laws governing how journalists work and travel amid quarantine restrictions.

Ken Mainardis, senior vice-president for content at Getty Images, comments: “In the midst of global uncertainties presenting unprecedented challenges, storytelling becomes more important than ever, as visual content is uniquely able to demonstrate how this particular virus is affecting daily lives around the world.”

Entries close 15 May. For more information, please visit the Getty Images website.
