Opportunity Description

International Deadline: December 6, 2021 – The inaugural iStock Inclusion Grants are dedicated to promoting the work of emerging creative artists seeking to draw attention to, and depict, underrepresented communities through their commercial photography work.

iStock is proud to partner with the following organizations to judge submissions and award the series of four grants: Black Women Photographers in the US, Creative Access UK, Fotografas Latam and The Australian Council for the Arts.

Each organizations’ judging panel will award a prize of $5,000 USD to a creator in support of their ongoing creative work or a proposed project.

These grants are open to commercial photographers and videographers which meet each partner’s specific eligibility criteria.

PRIZES & BENEFITS

  • One $5,000 USD prize awarded by each partner organization
  • The successful recipients will be invited to license their award‑winning content through GettyImages.com and iStock.com at a 100% royalty rate for imagery created within their proposed project (please see T&Cs for details). This is subject to you entering into a separate agreement with iStock allowing for the distribution of your content.
  • Winners who choose to license their imagery will receive guidance and mentorship from one of the judges or a Getty Images’ award‑winning Art Directors, as well as a feature on the Getty Images Creative Insights website, in addition to promotion on relevant Getty Images and iStock social channels. Please note, this additional support is not a requirement of the grants and choosing to take advantage of this opportunity is at your discretion.
