Earlier this year, Dove announced it would be teaming up with Getty Images to grant two female, female-identifying or non-binary photographers $5,000. The winners of the #ShowUs Grant have just been announced to two photographers who have pursued stories that shatter the stereotypes and celebrate women and aging. 

Now in its third year, Project #ShowUs looks to honor the diverse experiences of women in their 50s, 60s and 70s who are under or misrepresented in mainstream media. It encourages photographers and videographers to unveil the modern-day reality of women and female-identifying who live, active, healthy and fulfilling lives in a more authentic way.
