Calls for Proposals: Getty Images #ShowUs Grant Projects

Deadline: 30-Apr-22

The Getty Images is pleased to announce the #ShowUs grant which provides financial support and mentorship to artists who are committed to authentically representing women, women and non-binary people in commercial photography and videography.

Judges will be looking for submissions that break stereotypes and conventions celebrating women and aging. They wish to honor the full spectrum of diverse experiences – showing that beauty has no age limit – all experiences are valid, welcome and appreciated. Judges will give special consideration to photographers and videographers who portray authentic stories of women, women and non-binary individuals in their local communities.

The #ShowUs project is a global library of images created by women, women and non-binary photographers dedicated to breaking beauty stereotypes around the world. Created in partnership with Dove, this global collection is 100% created by and represents women, women and non-binary individuals as they are, not as others think they should be.

The jury will take into account the quality of the portfolio, the merit of the project and the professional capacity of the artist. Judges will also assess how submitted projects authentically represent women and non-binary people around the world and how the project will help change the way media and advertising portray women and non-binary people.
