I've been using Instagram for over a year now and still really like it. Figuring out who to follow is daunting and collected feeds make life easier on the viewer. The @natgeo feed has a great collection of contributing photographers posting their different magazine pictures. 1.7 million people follow it. But did you know those same photographer also post their personal photos to @thephotosociety?
If you love photography it is a great one to follow.
To complement our Grants for Editorial Photography program,
we offer an opportunity for young photographers to receive mentoring and
support through our Emerging Talent Award. Applicants must be under the age of

the Emerging Talent roster on Reportage by Getty Images.
To apply, please email a CV or bio and a website showing a

images as an example of your work. The total file size should not exceed 8mb.
The deadline will be May 1. All applications will be

1996 the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund announced a new award, the Howard
Chapnick Grant, to encourage and support leadership in fields ancillary to
photojournalism, such as editing research, education and management. The Grant
was established to honor the memory of Howard Chapnick, and acknowledge the
value of his enormous contribution to photography.
annual $5,000 grant may be used to finance any of a range of qualified
undertakings, which might include a program of further education, research, a
special long-term sabbatical project, or an internship to work with a
noteworthy group or individual. According to the Fund’s Board of Trustees,
special consideration will be given to projects that promote social change
and/or serve significant concerns of photojournalism. The grant is not intended
to be used for the production of photographs, which will continue to be funded
by the main grant of the Smith Fund.
