Getty Images teams with Instagram for $30,000 photo grant

gettyinstagram

Instagram isn’t just about the pursuit of likes and heavy filters. Over the years, the service has evolved into a display of what our beautiful world has to offer, captured for posterity one profile at a time. It has also become a great platform for users to tell a story—and that’s exactly what a new Getty partnership is in search of.

If you think your profile exhibits the kind of hard-hitting photojournalism typically found in National Geographic, you can apply for a $10,000 grant being offered by Getty Images. In partnership with Instagram, the respected photo agency will offer money to three users who believe their body of work documents “stories from underrepresented communities around the world.”

“We recognize that Instagram has introduced new opportunities for emerging voices, outside the mainstream media, to create and share projects of social importance,” Getty says. “This grant provides financial support and mentorship to amplify their impact.”

This is a new frontier for Getty, and a big win for Instagram, proving the service is more than just a useless social network; it’s a platform for people to connect and encourage change. The grants will be awarded based on a user’s current body of work on Instagram, focusing on things such as the ability to tell a story, and, above all, their quality of imagery. Additionally, entrants need to submit a biography, and how they approach photography and their subjects.

You can fill out an application here. Judges for the grant include Malin Fezehal, Maggie Steber, and Ramin Talale, who are all documentary photographers, along with photojournalist David Guttenfelder, and Kira Pollack, who is the director of photography at TIME.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

¿Alguna vez has visto un ornitorrinco? Es probablemente el animal más extraño que jamás encuentres. Es un mamífero de sangre caliente, sin embargo, pone huevos. Está cubierto con la piel, pero se divierte un pico de pato. Y sus pies palmeados también parecen má…

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
