In­sight­ful In­sta­gram­mers ac­knowl­edged

The Shed - - News -

The win­ners have been an­nounced for the in­au­gu­ral Getty Im­ages In­sta­gram Grant pro­gramme — which aimed to re­ward pho­tog­ra­phers who were us­ing In­sta­gram to doc­u­ment sto­ries from un­der-rep­re­sented com­mu­ni­ties around the world.

Se­lected from more than 1200 en­tries from across 109 coun­tries, the win­ners were Is­mail Fer­dous, a doc­u­men­tary pho­tog­ra­pher from Bangladesh; Brazil­ian-born pho­tog­ra­pher Adri­ana Zehbrauska­s; and Dmitry Markov from Rus­sia. Each grant re­cip­i­ent will re­ceive US$10K (nearly NZ$16K), as well as men­tor­ship from one of Getty Im­ages’ award­win­ning pho­tog­ra­phers, who in­clude John Moore, Chris McGrath, and An­drew Bur­ton.

Fer­dous car­ried out a year-long pro­ject fo­cus­ing on the sur­viv­ing rel­a­tives of those who were killed in the 2013 col­lapse of the Rana Plaza gar­ment fac­tory. Zehbrauska­s fo­cused on cov­er­ing top­ics such as cli­mate change, and doc­u­ment­ing the ev­ery­day lives of Latin Amer­i­cans. Markov spot­lighted the plight of or­phaned chil­dren.
