mentor/curator, critique sessions, writer
Photo: will, in consultation with the successful candidate, appoint a mentor/curator who will support the photographer through the duration of their project. Photo: will pay a modest honorarium to such mentor/curator. It is up to the photographer to determine the kind of relationship with the mentor/curator. Further, Photo: will continue to work with the photographer as an ongoing support.
At least one critique session will be organised where the photographer will present their work in progress to a larger panel of experts at Photo: in Johannesburg. This critique session creates an opportunity to get critique and feedback on the conceptual premise, approach and manifestation of the body of the work.
Photo: will also, in consultation with the successful candidate, appoint a writer who will work on a text to augment the body of work. The photographer may decide how this text can interact with the work and it can take form in any way, for instance as a critical text, a collaborative text, creative writing or the photographer might decide to do the text themselves.
