    "I’m from New York City. I had never even heard of the word ‘mushing’ before I covered the Yukon Quest,” Reportage photographer Katie Orlinsky tells National Geographic’s Proof blog in a recent interview. “But as soon as I watched the first dog team come into a checkpoint with their legs pounding on the sparkling snow and their paws covered in those funny neon-colored booties, I was hooked.”

    Katie was first exposed to the world of Alaskan sled dogs when she covered Yukon Quest, a 1000-mile dogsled race from Whitehorse, Yukon to Fairbanks, Alaska. Later this summer, she visited kennels in Eureka, Juneau and elsewhere to see how dogs pend the off-season, and explore the bond between musher and dog. Read the rest of the interview and see more of Katie’s photos on National Geographic’s website.

    Katie Orlinsky is a photojournalist from New York City. She regularly works for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and various non-profit organizations around the world. She received the Alexia Foundation First Place Student Grant in 2012 and the POYI Emerging Vision Incentive award in 2011 for the body of work “Innocence Assassinated: Living in Mexico’s Drug War.

    "Whatever becomes of England, I’m pretty sure our quirkiness will remain," photographer Peter Dench tells Channel 4 News in the UK. In a video report, he examines English identity, from the seaside boozer to the flag-waving royal street party.

    In Syria’s civil war, a conflict with many villains, a group of first responders called the Hanano Civil Defense team are doubtlessly the good guys. They are one of the last hopes for civilians caught on Aleppo’s front lines: after a bombing, they’re first to the scene to evacuate the injured, retrieve and clean bodies, and fight fires. In June, the reporter Matthieu Aikins and Reportage photographer Sebastiano Tomada spent seven days in Aleppo embedded with the group, who are the last hope for civilians who find themselves on the front lines of war. Their story and images were published as this month’s story in the online magazine Matter, part of the publishing platform Medium. See the feature here.

    'The whole time, I was acutely aware that ISIS positions were never very far away, sometimes less than a mile…Wherever we went, I asked where ISIS positions were. Sometimes the answers were exact. Other times the reaction was a simple shrug and a crooked smile. I kept replaying in my mind a scene I had depressingly run into twice before — I was kidnapped by Sunni insurgents in April 2004 outside of Falluja, and by Qaddafi troops in Libya in March 2011 — where the desolate horizon turned into an impromptu checkpoint, full of masked men with guns. It is a degree of terror known only through experience, the fear of driving knowingly into the arms of possible death. The masked men shoot into the air and celebrate their prey, while they decide whether they want you dead or alive. The only difference with ISIS is that I know if they capture me, there will be little negotiation for my life. They will kill me, and in the most brutal way.'

    'The traditional funding model, of agencies and magazines pushing money at photographers to do projects, is not what it used to be. Photographers these days have to explore all avenues to try to get enough money to continue their projects, and grants are a very important part of that.'

    -Jon Jones, Sunday Times Magazine Director of Photography and Getty Images Editorial Grant judge

    2014 marks the ten year anniversary of the Getty Images Grants program, which has now awarded over $1 million in funding to photographers.

    Arab countries collectively have one of the highest rates of female illiteracy in the world. This fact led photographer Laura Boushnak to launch her project ‘I Read I Write,’ about women and education in the Arab world. 

    Boushnak has been awarded the 2014 Getty Images and Lean In Editorial Grant for ‘I Read I Write.’ Read more about Laura and the project here.

    The Ganges is a river intimately connected with every aspect of Indian life. It is a source of water, energy and livelihood for millions of people who live along the banks of this river. Thanks to the fertile lands, it provides food to more than one-third of the Indian population. Its ecosystem also includes one of the most varied animal and plant species. Despite this, today it is one of the most polluted rivers in the world.

    Photographer Giulio Di Sturco has been awarded a 2014 Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography for his project ‘Ganges: Death of a River.’ Read more about Giulio and the project here.
