Purpose of the Alan Hagman Photojournalism Grant

Beginning in 2020, a $5,000 grant will be offered annually to a photojournalist to facilitate a project on topics ranging from human rights to environmental issues.  The grant will support work on important stories that might otherwise go untold.

The grant is open to photojournalists and photojournalism students who are U.S. residents.

The Hagman grant is named for the late Los Angeles Times photo editor who served as a mentor and championed the work of photojournalists throughout his career.

The Alan Hagman Grant is supported by donations from Alan’s family, friends and the photojournalism community.
