Giving Back From What Was Taken

This … this is why I love photojournalists: Yunghi Kim announced in a private Facebook group last week that she was creating ten, one-time grants of $1,000 each to support independent photojournalists. Where did the funds come from? From money she recouped from copyright infringements.

You probably can’t enter (unless you were already part of the online group), but that’s a tremendous gift – and it shows both the power and value of registering your work.

Disclaimer: I’ve know Yunghi since the early 1990s and thought she was pretty awesome before this.
