The Getty Images Instagram Grant, run in collaboration with Instagram, supports visual artists using #Instagram to tell important stories about communities underrepresented by mainstream media. 

Ismail Ferdous, a Bangladeshi documentary photographer using #Instagram to cover social humanitarian issues, received a grant in 2015 for his project “After Rana Plaza.” 

“This project came from a very personal place, as I live among those affected by the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh’s garment industry. Seeing the workers every day, coming and going, is a constant reminder of the collapse and its effects still linger more than two years later.” -@ismailferdous

My elder son told me to change our house but I denied him. I told him this house is attached with my son’s memories and I will not leave this place at any cost." 

The Getty Images Instagram Grant is accepting applications until April 12. Learn more and apply at gtty.im/grants
