Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
We are pleased to launch a new opportunity in collaboration with The Ampersand Foundation for a mid-career photographer living in the UK. The Ampersand/Photoworks Fellowship will provide a transformative opportunity for a mid-career artist to complete a new body of work.
Whilst many opportunities exist for emerging and graduate photographers including our own Jerwood/Photoworks Awards, the UK currently has few high-profile open access opportunities for mid-career photographers that support artists to make and exhibit new work. This new opportunity aims to enable and nurture the creation of new work through a combination of support including a £15,000 award, mentoring and curatorial support, a dedicated public programme and digital content with international reach, production budget and touring exhibition.
The artist will be selected through a free open call; submissions are now open and will close at midnight Sunday 28 February 2021. We are looking for projects which are already in the development phase that will benefit from financial resources and curatorial guidance and which can be completed in a 12 month timeframe by April 2022.
The shortlist and final selection of the fellowship awardee will be decided by an expert panel of curators and artists to be announced shortly.
The awardee will make new work over a period of approximately 12 months throughout 2021, ready to be exhibited by Photoworks in 2022. The entire programme, including the resulting exhibition, will be curated and produced by Photoworks in collaboration with a partner touring venue.

This new opportunity is generously funded by The Ampersand Foundation and supported by our print partner Spectrum Photographic.
