Reuters Next Generation Photojournalism Grant Program



Applicants must be between the ages of 18-35 and must be either studying photojournalism or working professionally in the activity. A focused project about a subject in a community or location close to you that you can reasonably complete in a few weeks or months is advisable.

Following the success of last years grant program, which saw eight recipients from across four continents selected from hundreds of high-quality entries, Reuters Pictures again offering up to eight USD 5,000 grants to passionate photojournalists or students of photojournalism.

The grant should be used to support photo assignments and projects that will advance the recipients experience, skills, and ability to tell new stories. Pictures taken by recipients as part of their grant project will be distributed globally on Reuters platforms.


Reuters, the worlds largest international multimedia news provider, announced the return of its photojournalism grant program, which seeks to recruit and develop a diverse new generation of young photojournalists.

Yannis Behrakis, Reuters photojournalist and Senior Editor, Special Projects, will advise and mentor grant recipients. Yannis is well known for his coverage of the European migrant crisis and was part of a team of Reuters Pictures photographers awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for their coverage of the crisis in 2016.

The photojournalism grants are being announced at the Visa pour l Image international festival of photojournalism, taking place in Perpignan, France. Aspiring photojournalists attending the festival will be able to learn more about Reuter's photojournalism and further details on the grant program by visiting the Reuters stand, located on the second floor of the Palais des Congres.

Application process:

In order to apply, you must submit a CV and a 35-50 picture portfolio (JPEG format) of both single images and multi-image stories. Applicants must also submit a detailed cover letter explaining a project or idea to use the grant.

All the materials must be sent through the Dropbox folder.
