'Every industry needs its eager aspirants, a next generation that will bolster, energize , fortify and hopefully challenge the status quo. 'Emerging Talent' describes our program well, a place where our established photojournalists and editors can shine a spotlight on photographers that have impressed and that have the potential to become one of the elite women and men that dedicate themselves to this world.' - Aidan Sullivan, VP, Reportage by Getty Images
Each year, we invite young photographers to apply for the Getty Images Emerging Talent Award. The entries present a stunning variety of subjects and styles, and help to reaffirm our belief that the future of photojournalism is bright.
It was hard to choose, but this year’s winners are (images by them from top to bottom): Elyor Nematov, Corinna Kern, Maddie McGarvey, Sebastian Montalvo Gray, and Antoine Bruy. Each will be featured on our Emerging Talent roster for the next year, along with Alejandro Cegarra, who joins as the winner of the Ian Parry Scholarship.
