With Getty Images’ mission to move the world, they are partnering with Dove and Girlgaze to promote diversity within creative commercial photography and videography, elevating the work and the voices of women, female‑identifying and non‑binary artists. The #ShowUs Grant provides financial support and mentorship to artists who are committed to authentically representing women, female‑identifying and non‑binary individuals in commercial photography and videography.
The #ShowUs Grant is dedicated toward promoting the work of emerging artists and is open to women, female identifying and non‑binary commercial photographers and videographers. Judges will be looking for submissions which represent Leadership in all its forms – this can be mother leading/teaching daughter, friend guiding friend, or women in professional leadership settings. Applicants are requested to conduct shoots safely and following local guidelines around social distancing. Judges will give particular consideration to photographers and videographers who are telling local stories of women in their communities.
Project #ShowUs is a global library of images created by women devoted to shattering beauty stereotypes around the world. Created in partnership with Dove and female photography collective Girlgaze this global collection is 100% powered by women, showing women as they are, not as others believe they should be.
Grants will be awarded by an industry‑leading panel of creative leaders selected for their expertise and experience. Selection will be based on the judges’ determination of the applicant’s ability to execute the submitted project with a compelling commercial visual narrative based on either still images or video. The jury will consider the caliber of the portfolio, the project’s merit and the artist’s professional ability. The judges will also be assessing how the submitted projects authentically represent women from across the globe and how the project will help to change the way media and advertising represent women.
