    Reportage by Getty Images offers its congratulations to the winners of this year’s Alexia Foundation Grants. Abir Abdullah, whose work will depict the danger of residential and workplace fires in Dhaka, Bangladesh, received the $15,000 professional grant.

    This year’s first-place student winner is Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, a graduate student at Ohio University, who will continue working on “Shane and Maggie,” her project on domestic violence. A gallery of photos from this series recently appeared on Time Lightbox.

    The second place student winner is Dijana MuMinovic, and awards of excellence were given to Souvid Datta, Annie Flanagan and Andrew Renneisen. In the professional category, the other finalists were freelance photographer Christian Werner based in Nordstemmen, Germany; Robin Hammond, a freelance photojournalist based in Paris, and a member of the photo agency Panos Pictures; Noriko Hayashi, a freelance photographer based in Tokyo; Alvaro Ybarra Zavala, 31, a Reportage photographer based in Spain; and Jenn Ackerman, a freelance photographer based in Minneapolis.
