Reuters Relaunches Photographers’ Grant in Memory of Yannis Behrakis –Reuters

The Reuters photography grant program, launched in 2017, will be expanded and renamed for long-time Reuters photojournalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Yannis Behrakis, who passed away last week. The program, which Yannis led, seeks to recruit and develop a diverse new generation of young photojournalists, something he was incredibly passionate about. It will relaunch for the 2020 grants under Yannis’s name with increased grants of $8k available to recipients.
