Reuters announces Recipients of its Photojournalism Grant Program

Reuters has announced the recipients of its photojournalism grant program which seeks to recruit and develop a diverse new generation of photojournalists. Eight emerging winning photojournalists will receive a $5,000 USD grant each to advance their abilities and tell new stories. The pictures taken by the recipients will be distributed globally on Reuters platforms.

The winning photojournalists are:

Daro Sulakauri, Ekaterina Anchevskaya, Gabriel Scarlett, Heba Khamis, Loren Elliott, Manuel Seoane, Nicky Woo and Thomas Nicolon.

Reuters photojournalist and senior editor, special projects, Yannis Behrakis said, “The Reuters Pictures grant program gives a rare opportunity to eight photojournalists, from diverse backgrounds and from around the world, to work with Reuters and develop their talent. I will be dedicating plenty of time to mentor each of them and help them understand in depth the needs of the industry in the digital age. The work of our grant winners will be seen by a global audience through Reuters platforms, bringing new stories from new perspectives which might otherwise go untold.”

Yannis Behrakis will advise recipients on their assignments and projects, providing advice and planning assistance. He 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.

Reuters, the news and media division of Thomson Reuters, is the world’s largest international multimedia news provider reaching more than one billion people every day.
