Women Photograph Mentorship Program 2022 for Female Photographers

Women Photograph Mentorship Program 2022 for Female Photographers

Deadline: October 15, 2021

Applications are open for the Women Photograph Mentorship Program 2022. The program will pair 24 industry leaders (12 photographers and 12 photo editors, curators, and educators) with 24 early-career photojournalists over the course of a year. Mentors include editors, curators, & photographers from The Wall Street Journal, TIME, Reuters, and the National Gallery of South Africa, among others.

The mentorship program will take place remotely over the course of one year, and requires 3-5 hours of engagement per month. 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.
