Photojournalist Sim Chi Yin has been chosen to receive the seventh annual Getty Images and Chris Hondros Fund Award. The Singaporean photographer will receive a grant of US $20,000 to support her documentary photography work.
“I never got to meet with Chris but the values, intelligence, respect and integrity he brought to his work were exemplary. As the industry continues to change, it is important that keep faith in documenting the world we live in,” said the 2018 Chris Hondros Fund Awardee Sim Chi Yin. “I’m grateful for this injection of encouragement during a point in time when I’m at a crossroads in my life and my work as an independent photographer. This grant allows me to take more time to think about why I want to produce imagery and distribute them to consumers all over the world.”
