Photographers between the ages of 18 and 25 years are invited to participate in the 3rd Young Photographer Award. This competition is geared towards passionate emerging photographers looking to cultivate a career in documentary photography or photojournalism but lacking the tools to realize their vision.
Awaiting the winner is a Canon EOS 1300D kit sponsored by Canon, as well as the opportunity to participate in an intensive, seven month Mentorship Programme, during which the photographer will have a chance to develop a documentary photography project that, if successful, will be exhibited during the UPPA 2019.
How to apply:
Photographers are asked to submit the following:
- a motivation letter introducing yourself as well as explaining why you should be considered for the award and the mentorship programme;
- a photographic project idea of a long term project that you would like to realize and take on during the mentorship programme. This has to be a realistic and attainable idea as you may have to follow through during the mentorship programme;
- a portfolio of 20 jpeg images taken by you. Anything to the contrary is grounds for disqualifications. Remember – images submitted will speak for you and your talent, so be sure to show your best work.
Note: All submissions must be done online on UPPA’s website.
Deadline for submissions is July 15th, 2018.
Contact [email protected] if you have any questions.
YPA and Mentorship Programme are made possible thank to the support from Canon Central and North Africa and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Uganda.
