Women Photograph Mentorship Program 2019/2020

Women Photograph Mentorship Program 2019/2020

Deadline: July 31, 2019

Applications for the Women Photograph Mentorship Program 2019-2020 are now open. The Mentorship Program will pair 22 industry leaders (11 photographers and 11 photo editors) with 22 early-career photojournalists over the course of a year. Mentors include editors & photographers from The New York Times, the Associated Press, National Geographic Society, and Magnum Foundation, among others.

The mentorship program will take place remotely over the course of one year. No travel or financial commitment is required to participate. The photographers who stand to benefit most from this program are already at the beginning of a documentary/photojournalistic practice and looking for targeted guidance and mentoring in the early stages of their career.


Women Photograph is an initiative that launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women* visual journalists. The private database includes more than 850 independent women documentary photographers based in 99 countries and is available privately to any commissioning editor or organization. Women Photograph also operates an annual series of project grants for emerging and established photojournalists, a year-long mentorship program, and a travel fund to help female photographers access workshops, festivals, and other developmental opportunities.
