Small businesses often find it challenging to get off the ground and even more difficult to thrive if they lack finances.

Getty x Dove £ShowUs Grant (2x $5,000)

According to Visual GPS market research, two out of every three women have encountered bias or discrimination because of their age, and 21% of women believe age is the primary cause of bias. Getty Images is collaborating with Dove to create the #ShowUs Grant, a revolutionary new initiative. Two female or non-binary photographers will each get $5,000 in order to challenge misconceptions about aging and women. The #ShowUs Grant is intended to showcase the rich and active lives that many women in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and beyond lead. Celebrating all phases of life and creating a more inclusive future in visual images will result in more real material and, ideally, a better representation of ageing women.

The grant is open to photographers and videographers from all around the world who utilise their talents to promote diversity. Apply Here. Applications will close on 29 April at 00:00 (EST)
