Photojournalism grants will help young photojournalists tell original human stories from around the world.
Following the success of last year’s grant program, which saw eight recipients from across four continents selected from hundreds of high-quality entries, Reuters Pictures is again offering up to eight $5,000 USD grants to passionate photojournalists or students of photojournalism.
The grant should be used to support photo assignments and projects that will advance the recipients’ experience, skills and ability to tell new stories. Pictures taken by recipients as part of their grant project will be distributed globally on Reuters platforms.
- Applicants must be between the ages of 18-35, and must be either studying photojournalism or working professionally in the activity.
- They must submit a CV and a 35-50 picture portfolio (JPEG format) of both single images and multi-image stories.
- Applicants must also submit a detailed cover letter explaining a project or idea to use the grant.
- A focused project about a subject in a community or location close to you that you can reasonably complete in a few weeks or months is advisable.
