    Photographer Joseph Sywenkyj has been awarded the 2014 W Eugene Smith Fund grant for his project Verses from a Nation in Transition. The work will ‘portray stories of how families are profoundly and subtly affected by recent events in Ukraine as they adapt to the complex repercussions of the revolution and Russian supported war against their nation. It is through stories of families who have been seriously impacted physically, mentally and economically by the crisis that we will gain insight into and how events in the country are influencing society as a whole.’

    Moises Saman was also awarded a Fellowship for his project Discordia: The Arab Spring, and Muriel Hasburn was awarded the Howard Chapnick Grant. Read more on New York Times Lens.

    'In October 2012, a drone strike in northeast Pakistan killed a 67-year-old woman picking okra outside her house. At a briefing held in 2013 in Washington, DC, the woman’s 13-year-old grandson, Zubair Rehman, spoke to a group of five lawmakers. “I no longer love blue skies,” said Rehman, who was injured by shrapnel in the attack. “In fact, I now prefer gray skies. The drones do not fly when the skies are gray.”'

    America’s drone war has killed thousands of people over the last ten years, but the visual record of it is miniscule  After receiving a Getty Images Editorial Grant in 2013, photographer Tomas Van Houtryve set out across the United States to create images that would bring light to the circumstances under which drones operate. He attached his camera to a small drone and aerially photographed the types of targets that drones strike: weddings, funerals, public gatherings.

    '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. In this video, some of the winners and judges of the Editorial Grant reflect on their experiences with the program and why it is so important to photojournalists.

    Mennonites are Christians, living in isolated farming communities and fiercely protective of their privacy. They reject modern technology and follow a way of life that has not changed since the 16th century. They tend the fields and raise cattle, mostly to produce cheese. Their language is an old dialect of medieval German called Plattdeustch. They don’t allow marriage outside their community. As the 21st century brings modernity almost everywhere, Mennonites have found a place to settle in what they perceive is a little developed Bolivia, where they have enough isolation and freedom to follow their tradition without having to compromise their values.

    Photographer Jordi Busque was awarded a 2014 Getty Images Editorial Grant for his project Mennonites of Bolivia. Read more about Jordi and the the project.

    'My father would disappear for months at a time. Then, unexpectedly, he would come home. What he didn’t expect was what happened next. At seven years old, I was taken away from him, far away. It was October 1996. The Soviet Union had long collapsed, and by then so had my family. We had become desperate overnight: avoiding landlords and collecting bottles in exchange for food. One morning, my mom woke me and my brother to say we were going on a trip.’

    Reportage Featured Photographer Diana Markosian has been awarded the Firecracker grant, which supports female European photographers, for a project chronicling her quest to reconnect with her long lost father. Read more at Firecracker.

    'Racism has long been part of American history. Undeniably powerful and disturbing images of swastikas, Klansmen and flaming crosses are immensely associated with the term. Since the civil-rights movement of the ’50s and ’60s, many people prefer to believe racism no longer exists. Yet, it is still alive and functioning in this country. Today, with the goal of becoming part of the American mainstream, the racist movement operates through both subtle and transparent practices to recruit new believers from among America's youth.'

    -David S. Holloway, who won a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2005 for his project documenting white nationalism in the US.

    This project is more correctly a response to changes in the American social landscape: the return of thousands of soldiers from Afghanistan, the rise in suicides among military personnel, in the numbers of homeless vets, jobless vets, veterans being sent to prison. I have no choice but to do this, what with one violent attack on a population invariably leading to others, one killing leading to myriad killings, one isolated war evolving into global war, with apathy and silence leading the way.’

    In 2008, renowned photographer Eugene Richards received a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography for ‘War is Personal,’ his project examining the effects of the Iraq War on veterans and their families. After publishing a book of the work, he again applied for the grant in 2013, and received it. See Richards speak about the grant and War is Personal in this video.

    'The city is not markedly divided into ‘French’ or ‘Arab’ neighborhoods. It is more of a ‘rich-poor’ divide. But the high concentration of Arab families in the poorer northern quartiers [quarters] of Marseille is clearly evident. The schools are perfect examples that depict this ‘north-south’ or ‘Arab-French’ divide. Children of Muslim families are concentrated in schools in the Northern working-class quartiers of Marseille.'

    -Bharat Choudhary, who won a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2012 to examine the roots of ‘Islamophobia’ in Marseille, France.
