Daniele Tamagni Grant until 10 August 2021
Deadline: 10 August 2021. The Grant is a unique opportunity directed to photographers coming from any country in the world, whose work explores the African identity and engages with the African continent or its diaspora.
Daniele Tamagni started his professional journey in photography at 32 years old. We believe that it is important to support emerging photographers in making their first steps in the industry, so this is why there will be no age limit to apply, but applicants should have less than five years of professional experience.
The recipient of the Grant will be awarded with a one year scholarship at the Market Photo Workshop (Johannesburg, ZA), the most prestigious institution for photography education in Africa. During the Scholarship, the recipient will create a new body of work to be presented for admission to the Addis Foto Fest in Ethiopia and an Italian Photography Festival (still to be confirmed) and to be introduced to international photo editors and professionals of the media industry.
The Daniele Tamagni Grant is a valuable experience allowing the recipient to actively participate to the activities of the Market Photo Workshop. Distinguished and famous alumni include Jodi Bieber, Zanele Muholi, Sydney Seshibedi and Nontsikelelo Veleko.
Elevating creativity to a profession – Thanks to the Daniele Tamagni Grant, the recipient will be encouraged to become a positive agent of change, by shining new light over the evolution of the African continent and identity through the creation of a new body of work.
Impact rather than Money – The Daniele Tamagni Grant aims at supporting the new generation of photographers long term, by providing them with the tools and guidance they might need to create new work and have the opportunity to tell their stories, in order to enrich the narrative on the African identity.
A global network – The Grant, thanks to its international partners and panel members, is a great opportunity to engage with a network of important professionals of the photo and media industry.
