Through funding and mentorship, this grant will support an ongoing documentary project from a professional photojournalist who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to their story. Additional consideration will be given to applicants who evince a personal connection to and engagement with the communities they cover.

Type of Grants

  • Women Photograph + Nikon Grants
    • These $5,000 grants will support photography projects — either new or in-progress — from visual journalists working in a documentary capacity.
    • Five grants are available, one of which will be earmarked for a non-binary or transgender photographer.
    • Applicants are encouraged to submit a story, rather than singles, as part of the grant application. The images need not be related to the project proposal. Multimedia projects are welcome.
  • Women Photograph + Getty Images Grant
    • Women Photograph has partnered with Getty Images to award a $10,000 grant in support of an ongoing documentary project from a professional photojournalist who has demonstrated a long-term commitment to their story. Applicants should submit portfolios of 20-25 images indicating that a substantial amount of work has already been completed, and that the photographer has a clear vision of what further work is needed to complete the project.
