Getty Images Creative Bursary Now Available : Photographer


Getty Images has launched a new Creative Bursary that's designed to support the development of the next generation of photographic talent.

The $40,000 annual bursary will support emerging photographers in the creative field and those who wish to apply need to submit a project proposal and visual brief, in support of their creative idea. Applicants have complete creative freedom and can submit ideas across the photography spectrum, from ground-breaking conceptual shoots to creative portraiture, or more traditional stock.

The Bursary supports the next generation of talent, meaning recipients must be 30 years or under or have been pursuing photography as a professional career for less than three years. Three recipients will be selected every quarter, 12 per annum, with judges awarding bursaries equating to $10,000 per quarter. 

In addition to receiving the funding, photographers will have the option to have their winning submissions represented by Getty Images, with 100 per cent of royalties going back to the photographer. Recipients will also be offered the opportunity to join Getty Images’ contributor network where they can license previous and future work with Getty Images, on a separate and traditional contributor contract.

Interested photographers are encouraged to apply from today with the first bursaries granted this coming December and thereafter each quarter.

Shortlisted projects will be judged by an acclaimed industry-leading panel, including:

  • Andy Saunders, Senior Vice President, Creative Content, Getty Images
  • Andy Adams, Photographer and Publisher of Flak Photo
  • Jeanie Annan-Lewin, Founder of Moodboard Zine and London-based fashion editor and stylist
  • Andrea Wise, Co-Founder of Diversify Photo and independent artist and editor
  • Brent Lewis, Senior Photo Editor of ESPN’s The Undefeated and Co-Founder of Diversify Photo
