Getty Images has announced the recipients of its annual Getty Images Instagram Grant.

Three recipients hailing from the USA and India were chosen as the winners and as a result, were awarded $10,000 each, mentorship by an expert Getty Images photojournalist and the opportunity to have their work showcased at the Getty Images Gallery in London from 24 October – 4 November.

This year’s recipients are:

Saumya Khandelwal (@khandelwal_saumya) is an India-based photojournalist working across social issues including gender and the environment. Her project, ‘Child Brides of Shravasti’, particularly impressed the judges. Her images follow the daily lives of young girls in a part of Uttar Pradesh, India who are forced into early marriages. Documenting the harsh realities faced by these children, Saumya uses Instagram to depict how the lives of these girls drastically change after child marriage.

Isadora Kosofsky (@isadorakosofsky) A documentary photographer based in LA, Isadora highlights American social issues from a humanistic stance. Her images range from depicting ageing and poverty, to mental health and substance abuse, and her harrowing images of imprisoned minors were singled out by the jury.

Nina Robinson (@arkansasfamilyalbum) Arkansas-based photographer Nina originally began documenting the everyday life of her family in rural Arkansas but later expanded her project to include other African-American communities in the area. Her project ‘An Arkansas Family Album’ focuses on an intimate exploration of loss, love and tradition in a rural black Southern community.

The judging panel has also recognized Swedish photographer Nora Lorek (@noralorek) as an Honourable Mention. Nora’s projects include documenting the plight of South Sudanese refugees in Uganda.
