IdeasTap and Magnum Photos are launching an exhibition of work by the 18 photographers shortlisted for the fourth annual IdeasTap and Magnum Photographic Award Downstairs at Mother London on Friday October 31.
In addition to having their work printed, framed, and exhibited at the show, each of the 18 shortlisted photographers has received a mentoring session with a Magnum photographer.
Photographers in the 16-22 category were mentored by Nikos Econompolous; in the 22-40 category by Mark Power and in the 31+ category by Chris Steele-Perkins.
Following the show, nine finalists will receive £1,500 to shoot their dream project. They will also create a Magnum in Motion multimedia essay and attend a second mentoring session with a vocational industry focus.
In April 2014 the overall winners will be announced. One winner from each age category (16-22; 23-30 and 30+) will be awarded a £5,000 prize, while the winners of the 16-22 category and 23-30 category will also receive a paid internship at Magnum’s offices in London and New York respectively.
