20 Apr Tierney Fellowship – Market Photo Workshop
A little something for you photographers out there..
The Tierney Fellowship at the Market Photo Workshop is a one year mentorship based grant for a photographer to produce an accomplished body of work. The Tierney Fellowship was created in 2003 and is an international fellowship that supports photographers from institutions around the world. The fellowship affords the student financial, institutional, peer and mentor based support to produce a body of work in a year.
Located in Newtown, Johannesburg, the Market Photo Workshop strives to create an environment where students learn, not only the technical and conceptual aspects of photography, but also ways of critical thinking integral to the understanding of contemporary photographic practice.
Equipping students with an extensive insight of the role photography plays socially, politically and in the wider cultural community, the Market Photo Workshop provides students with the vital tools needed to negotiate the urban terrain that is present-day Johannesburg.
The Market Photo Workshop plays a crucial role in establishing new voices in South African photography. Alumni include: Jodi Bieber (seven times World Press Winner), other World Press winners like Themba Hadebe, and Sydney Seshibedi; and internationally acclaimed photographers such as Nontsikelelo Veleko and Zanele Muholi.
This Fellowship application is only for people who attend or have attended the Market Photo Workshop some time in the past.
A detailed briefing will be held on the 4 May 2011 at 1pm at the
Market Photo Workshop Auditorium. The briefing is beneficial to anyone
