After more than 1,200 entries from 109 countries, three Instagram photographers have received $10,000 each to continue “documenting stories from underrepresented communities around the world using Instagram.”
The grant comes from Getty, who launched the Getty Images Instagram Grant program back in May.
“Our three recipients could not better exemplify the original aim of this grant: to document and share stories of underrepresented communities that otherwise rarely come into focus. We are honored to award these grants and hope they will encourage talent to continue to tell important stories through new platforms,” says Elodie Mailliet Storm, Getty Images’ Senior Director of Content Partnerships.
The three winners will receive mentorship from a Getty photographer alongside their $10,000.
Without further ado, here’s who’s impressing with their Instagram photography.
