We are thrilled to announce that the inaugural UK scholarship, awarded by Getty Images in partnership with Creative Access, has been awarded to Abigail Holsborough.
In March 2020, in partnership with Creative Access, Getty Images launched their inclusion scholarship, with the aim of supporting emerging editorial talent within minority groups, offering aspiring photojournalists the creative means and solutions to pursue an education that will enable careers within the industry.
We are pleased to announce that the recipient of this photojournalism scholarship grant of $10K is Abigail Holsborough. Based in London, Abigail is pursuing a BA in Fine Art Print and Time-Based Media at Wimbledon College of Art.
In response to receiving the grant, Abigail said:
I’m really excited to be this year’s recipient of the Creative Access + Getty Images Inclusion Scholarship. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into some longer term projects and being supported in this way to create work that I hope resonates with people.
Creative Access CEO, Josie Dobrin, said:
Abigail really impressed all of us with her determination to pursue photojournalism, the photographs in her application and commitment to documenting the world as she sees it. We are looking forward to seeing how her work develops and her specific project to explore and document her ideas of home. Massive congratulations to Abigail on her achievement.
The Getty Images Inclusion Scholarships are part of the Getty Images wider Grants program, which, since its inception, has awarded US$1.7 million to photographers and filmmakers worldwide. Please visit Where We Stand to learn more.
