    '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.

    'My quest following the e-waste trail began by accident while standing over the cliffs looking at the icebergs in Uummannaq, Greenland, in November 2010. I could see the results of our modern day throw-away society, discarded junk: computers, dish washers, washing machines, televisions, stereos, office supplies, toilets, trucks, cars…The amount of e-waste we generate is unfathomable, and has resulted in ecological devastation, destroying millions of families, who must harvest whatever is salvageable at great risk to their lives.'

    -Photographer Stanley Greene, who was awarded a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2011 for his project following the trail of electronic trash that is creating by modern technology.

    I came to realize that the majority of the gang members, girls and boys, were often sexually abused in their childhood. Knowing this truth allows us to understand their aggressive behavior and the abuses they commit…To understand does not mean to justify, but having this knowledge can allow us to better fight the root causes.’

    'I was able to share pivotal moments with these women, including Kayla, as she turned 21. She was the original Upstate Girl, whose labor and delivery I captured when she was 14. Her now 6 year-old son, De Anthony, was just suspended from kindergarten and diagnosed with ADHD, OCD and separation anxiety.

    I continue to report on this group of young women in Troy, whose lives have become linked by love and blood and law and class, as revelations about the agency of their bonds unfold with each passing birthday.’

    -Brenda Ann Kenneally, who received a Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography in 2009 for her long-term project ‘Upstate Girls,’ which documents the lives of young women in the post-industrial city of Troy, New York.
