Getty Images today announced the first two winners of its 2007 grants for editorial photography. Each recipient gets $20,000 to pursue photojournalism projects.
The winners are Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson from New York and Getty Images contributor Ziyah Gafic from Sarajevo, Bosnia.
Now in its third year, the grant program attracted a record 153 entries from photojournalists in 26 countries.
Gafic plans to use the grant to complete his series of photo essays titled “Troubled Islam — Short Stories From Troubled Societies.” Anderson will focus on a project titled “The Bolivian Revolution — Venezuela and Bolivia at a Crossroads.”
