Magnum Foundation’s Photography and Social Justice Program expands diversity and creativity in the field of documentary photography through capacity-building and critical explorations of photography and social change. Each year, the program supports a diverse, international group of Photography and Social Justice Fellows who are passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through photography. With New York City as a cultural resource, the program provides space for interdisciplinary experimentation, mentored project development, and cross-cultural, critical discourse at the intersection of photography and social justice. During the program, Fellows work on projects with support from Magnum Foundation mentors. Moreover, the Photography and Social Justice Fellowship is a fully funded program.

Fully Funded Photography & Social Justice Fellowship

As the part of a fully funded fellowship program, Magnum Foundation covers the cost of travel and room and board for the sessions in New York City. Further, fellows also receive a modest stipend to support the production of their projects. Moreover, the Magnum Foundation is organizing the fellowship program in partnership with the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.
