Those of you that collaborate with non-profit organizations will want to look into this opportunity for funding your projects:
From the Getty Images Website:
“We proudly support photographers and communications professionals who use imagery to promote positive change in our world. To that end, we’ve launched our Grants for Good.
Nonprofits need imagery to tell their stories effectively, which is why our Grants for Good provide two grants of $15,000 annually, to cover photographer, filmmaker and agency costs as they create compelling new imagery for the nonprofit of their choice.
Grants recipients may use the entire award to offset shoot expenses, or choose to donate all or part of it directly to their charity and contribute their own time and resources. The photographer and the nonprofit as well as the communications agency involved will be showcased to the media and to our customers..
Feel free to contact us with questions about our Grants for Good at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Grants will be announced in June.
