The Magnum Foundation is accepting applications for its fellowship from early-career practitioners who are at a critical moment in their development as photographers.

During the fellowship, a fellow will produce an in-depth project local to New York City that demonstrates a commitment to social issues and community based work. The fellows are encouraged to build relationships with their subjects in the field, build partnerships with relevant organizations, and experiment with new narrative forms and storytelling techniques.

The fellows receive mentorship and project development support from Magnum Foundation staff and extended network throughout the duration of the fellowship.

The six-week programme, running from February to April 2019, enables fellows to produce an in-depth project that demonstrates a commitment to social issues and community-based work in the city.

Fellows receive a total stipend of US$6,000 and mentorship.

Applicants must have expertise in at least one of the following areas: video production, graphic design, emerging technology, and research.

Applications close on January 4, 2019.
