Getty Images, Associations Collaborate on Diversity Scholarship Program
The scholarships are another initiative Getty Images has taken to increase D & I
The world’s largest stock photo house is teaming with nonprofits and associations to offer scholarships that will bring more diverse talent into the fields of photography and photojournalism.
This week, Getty Images announced the launch of its Inclusion Scholarships, timed to the archive’s 25th anniversary. The company is partnering with the U.K.-based Creative Access, the global organization Women Photograph, and three U.S.-based associations: the National Association of Black Journalists, the Asian American Journalists Association, and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Each scholarship will be worth $10,000, and the U.S.-based scholarships will include stipends to attend each respective association’s annual meeting.
“The Inclusion Scholarships are a continuation of our commitment to foster greater representation and inclusion within the photographic and photojournalism industries,” said Getty’s senior vice president of content, Ken Mainardis, in a news release. “Since Getty Images was founded 25 years ago, our mission has been to move the world with visuals and accurately represent the society we live in, inclusive of all voices and perspectives.”
