Photojournalism Grant Program

Reuters, the world’s largest international multimedia news provider, today announced the return of its photojournalism grant program, which seeks to recruit and develop a diverse new generation of young photojournalists.

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.

Yannis Behrakis, Reuters photojournalist and Senior Editor, Special Projects, will advise and mentor grant recipients. Yannis is well known for his coverage of the European migrant crisis and was part of a team of Reuters Pictures photographers awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for their coverage of the crisis in 2016.

 ”We had an incredible response to the inaugural program in 2017 and we’re delighted to be offering the grants again this year,” said Reuters Global Editor of Video and Pictures John Pullman. “We want to attract talented young photojournalists from around the world who can tell original human stories from new perspectives. We look forward to reviewing the applications.”

Other Reuters activities at this major photo industry event include:

  • Reuters Pictures photographers and senior editors will be providing portfolio reviews for photographers seeking feedback on their work.
  • Reuters Pictures photographer Edgard Garrido’s work will be exhibited in Hope, Despair and the Distant Promise of America, an exhibition documenting the journey by more than 1,000 Central Americans through Mexico towards the U.S. border.
  • Reuters Pictures photographer Carlos Garcia Rawlins’s work on Venezuela will be presented during the evening screening on September 5. Carlos was the Reuters 2017 Photographer of the Year, recognizing his work covering the country’s crisis that year.
