Getty Images: Creatives in Quarantine 2020

10 entries will be selected and awarded $2000 USD each

At Getty Images, we believe creative people are resilient. During this time of global uncertainty, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, a creative outlet is more important than ever before. For some, creativity is relied upon as a means of income, for others it may be used to alleviate stress or as a form of self-expression; whatever the reason, Getty Images want to award 10 creatives with $2,000 USD grants, to help lessen financial stress and bring light to a challenging time. Submissions will be judged by an industry-leading panel of judges, with recipients being awarded for moving , entertaining or ground-breaking creative projects, created while in quarantine.

A portfolio of work should be submitted, alongside a one page document detailing the thinking behind your work, as well as a biography telling us who you are and what drives you creatively.
10 entrants will be awarded $2K each. Photographers and videographers, should they wish, will also have the opportunity to license their award-winning work for commercial use on the Getty Images and iStock websites on a 100% royalty rate.
