Produced by the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Getty Unshuttered is a positive community for teen photographers like you to share your unique view of the world, grow your skills, and build your portfolios. It’s free to use and ad-free, too.

When you share your photos with the Getty Unshuttered community, our museum photo experts are right there with you, looking for 1000 most impactful photos to include in our live Unshuttered takeover party at the Getty Center in LA this June.

Artists are why we built Getty Unshuttered. It’s your story and ONLY YOU can tell it. Share YOUR vision, through YOUR lens.

Share your photos and inspire other photographers with your images. Every post helps you get noticed. How far can you grow as an artist? Challenge yourself!

Like and follow other photographers to help them grow, too. The Unshuttered team at the Getty Museum is always on the lookout for great work and new artists to celebrate. Every accolade helps you level up. Your work could be a “Getty Pick” or sport a “Picture of the Day” badge.

Every photo posted to the app between now and June 15 has a chance to be included in the Unshuttered live event at the Getty Center on June 26. We'll choose 1,000 of the most compelling, eye-catching images to transform the museum's courtyard walls at our huge Unshuttered takeover party. It’s all to celebrate our amazing teen artists, and we want you to be there.

Getty Unshuttered is produced by the J. Paul Getty Museum and is an official app of the J. Paul Getty Trust in Los Angeles. Getty Unshuttered is inspired by Genesis Motor America and its commitment to education through the arts.

Weak execution with good intentions

The idea of challenges is a good one. Problem is, why recreate Instagram. This should use a users existing IG photos submitted to this from that feed.
In addition, you must create an account before finding out more information about this. There should be a more information given before having to sign up. The only upside is the ability to easily deactivate an account, which I did after 20 minutes after checking this out.

We love Instagram too. If its your jam connect with us @gettyunshuttered or #unshuttered. You'll find our photo tips right in our feed.

I love the idea behind the purpose for this app but it keeps crashing every time I try to upload a photo or scroll through portfolios to look at other pictures.

Thank you for your feedback and for being part of our community. We've been working hard to squash as many bugs in Getty Unshuttered as we can. We hope you will consider downloading the most current version and trying our app again. Feel free to contact us for any additional assistance at unshuttered@getty.edu.

Good idea, no quality control

I deleted this within a few minutes of downloading, there’s no quality control and I was bombarded with d*** pics as soon as I opened up a category.
