2020 GRANT WINNER
yong teck lim
Yong is a photographer and editor born and raised in Singapore. His love for sport originated from his competitive basketball background.
Having picked up photography only in college, Yong honed his eye through covering school sports. Majoring in communication at SUNY Buffalo’s offshore campus, Yong found work with Reuters as a multimedia producer, and later ventured into freelance work. Yong went on to intern with Getty Sport in Los Angeles in spring 2019, and is now a contract photo editor with Getty Images.
Currently based out of Singapore, where there is nary a focus in sport, Yong’s goal is to one day work in the U.S., photograph sport daily and grow alongside the best.
Having been on loaners from Canon through his career, Yong hopes to use the DPPF grant to acquire more equipment of his own and fund international travel to future workshops and gatherings in a post-pandemic world.
