Thomson Reuters is inviting applications for its Photojournalism grants program to recruit and develop a diverse new generation of young photojournalists.
Photojournalism grants will help young photojournalists tell original human stories from around the world.
Following the success of last year’s grant program, which saw eight recipients from across four continents selected from hundreds of high-quality entries, Reuters Pictures is again offering up to eight $5,000 USD grants to passionate photojournalists or students of photojournalism.
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.
The photojournalism grants are being announced at the Visa pour l’Image international festival of photojournalism, taking place in Perpignan, France. Aspiring photojournalists attending the festival will be able to learn more about Reuters photojournalism and further details on the grant program by visiting the Reuters stand, located on the second floor of the Palais des Congrès.
