Deadline: 24 October 2021. With Getty Images’ mission to move the world, we are partnering with Dove to promote diversity within creative commercial photography and videography, elevating the work and the voices of women, femmes and non‑binary artists. The #ShowUs Grant provides financial support and mentorship to artists who are committed to authentically representing women, femmes and non‑binary individuals in commercial photography and videography.
The #ShowUs Grant is dedicated to promoting the work of emerging women, femmes and non‑binary commercial photographers and videographers. Judges will be looking for submissions which shatter stereotypes and conventions via Body Positivity – let’s celebrate the unique journeys of what it means to exist as women, femmes and non‑binary people in the world. We wish to honour the full spectrum of diverse experiences – from thriving in one’s body, to having a more challenging relationship to it – all experiences are valid, welcome, and appreciated. Judges will give particular consideration to photographers and videographers who are depicting authentic stories of women, femmes and non‑binary individuals in their local communities.
Project #ShowUs is a global library of images created by women, femmes and non‑binary photographers devoted to shattering beauty stereotypes around the world. Created in partnership with Dove this global collection is 100% created by and representing women, femmes and non‑binary individuals as they are, not as others believe they should be.
