Getty Images Grants for Editorial Photography

Welcome to the Getty Images Grants application system. Before you apply, please review the guidelines and eligibility requirements on our Editorial Grants homepage. Applications that do not meet our requirements will not be submitted to judges for consideration.

To ensure fair and unbiased selection, all proposals reviewed by the independent panel of judges remain anonymous until the judging is complete. Submissions that contain a photographer's name and/or contact information within the caption field or the proposal will be ineligible.

Please contact us at with any questions.

Before you begin to register and apply, please prepare the following:
  • A proposal describing the scope and purpose of your project, maximum 500 words.
  • A bio, maximum 500 words.
  • 20-25 portfolio images, sized to 3000 pixels at the longest dimension, 300 dpi, saved as JPG with standard compression no lower than 8 on the JPG scale. Image captions should be no longer than 500 characters each.

Important notes: There is no fee to apply to the Getty Images Grants and applicants retain all copyrights to their imagery submitted for the judges' review.
