Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellowship
Magnum Foundation’s Photography and Social Justice Program supports and trains early career and emerging photographers, artists, journalists, scholars, and activists who are passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through photography.
The Photography and Social Justice Program builds capacity and community among a diverse, international network of Fellows who have not had access to mentorship or training in photography but can demonstrate a commitment to activism and social justice. Priority will be given to applicants from regions and communities where freedom of expression is limited.
Using New York City as a cultural resource, the program provides space for interdisciplinary experimentation and cross-cultural, critical discourse at the intersection of photography and social justice.
The Photography and Social Justice Fellowship takes place over the course of six months, and includes two laboratories, one in the summer and one the following winter, held at CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism in New York City that include technical trainings, lectures, and discussions exploring photography as a medium for social engagement. In this six-month period, fellows also produce a body of work that aims to advance social justice in their communities with mentorship from accomplished photographers, artists, and others from Magnum Foundation’s network.
During the laboratories in New York City, the Fellowship covers the cost of travel, room, and board. Fellows also receive a modest stipend to support production of their projects.
