Deadline: 15 November 2018.
The grant should be used to support photo assignments and projects that will advance the recipients’ experience, skills and ability to tell new stories. Pictures taken by recipients as part of their grant project will be distributed globally on Reuters platforms.
Yannis Behrakis, Reuters photojournalist and Senior Editor, Special Projects, will advise and mentor grant recipients. Yannis is well known for his coverage of the European migrant crisis and was part of a team of Reuters Pictures photographers awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for their coverage of the crisis in 2016.
Applicants must be between the ages of 18-35, and must be either studying photojournalism or working professionally in the activity. They must submit a CV and a 35-50 picture portfolio (JPEG format) of both single images and multi-image stories. Applicants must also submit a detailed cover letter explaining a project or idea to use the grant. A focused project about a subject in a community or location close to you that you can reasonably complete in a few weeks or months is advisable.
