Istanbul-based photojournalist Lynsey Addario is among the winners of the 2009 MacArthur Fellowships.
Paying $500,000 over five years, the no-strings-attached fellowships are among the largest grants given to support creative work. Addario is the only photographer among the 24 grant winners announced Tuesday. Fewer than ten photographers have been awarded MacArthur Fellowships since the program started in 1981.

The grant process is open to U.S. citizens or residents who must be nominated. Addario, 36, is a U.S. citizen.

Addario has won numerous honors for her coverage of hotspots such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Darfur, Congo and Saudi Arabia.
