The Bradford Fellowship in Photography 2012-2013

In partnership with Bradford University and Bradford College, we are seeking to appoint a photographer, or artist working with photography as the 2012-13 Bradford Fellow in Photography.

We are looking for a mid-career photographer with experience of teaching, publishing and producing work for exhibition. The successful candidate would deliver an agreed number of lectures to the students at both Bradford College and Bradford University. They would also work with Museum staff to produce a gallery exhibition and associated events around the new or ongoing work to show in late autumn 2013. The exhibition will be part of the Ways of Looking photography festival in Bradford.

The Bradford Fellowship is a partnership between this Museum, Bradford College and Bradford University. Established in 1985, the Fellowship supports established photographers to develop their professional practice, while working with the institutional partners to enhance the cultures, practice and knowledge of photography.

The commitment of the partners to the Fellowship has resulted in significant legacies, both in allowing photographers to create important new bodies of work, and enriching the National Photography Collection through the acquisition of Fellow's work.

The Fellowship seeks to deliver the following outcomes:

  1. To enable a photographer/artist to explore their personal artistry and ideas to produce a new body of work.
  2. Production of an exhibition to be shown at the National Media Museum during autumn 2013. The exhibition may travel to other venues.
  3. Work with students at Bradford College and University to give an insight into the artist's working practice and to encourage the development of the students own practice.
  4. To enrich the Fellowship Collection held within the National Photography Collection with prints acquired from the commission.

The closing date for applications is Monday 3 September 2012. Interviews will be held on Tuesday 18 September 2012 at the National Media Museum, Bradford. Full details, including application etc, can be found here.
