Deadline for Magnum Workshop Scholarship is fast approaching

Magnum is giving a Photography Workshop in Toronto in May.

Scotiabank is awarding five Canadian Students a Scholarship to the Workshop.

Time is running out. If you get the scholarship because of this posting you owe me a coffee.

These are the details.....

Scotiabank will be awarding five scholarships for Canadian photography students to attend the Magnum Photos Workshop.

For the third year, Scotiabank is proud to partner with CONTACT and Magnum to support the advancement of emerging photographers. Scotiabank is committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work, both in Canada and abroad.

Application Guidelines: The Scotiabank Scholarships are available for Canadian photography students enrolled in an educational institution within Canada or abroad. Qualified applicants will be selected through a combination of the merit of their work and their personal statement and chosen by a Magnum jury.

Please note the scholarships do not apply to the Magnum in Motion Workshop. If you plan on participating in the workshop regardless of being awarded a scholarship, please apply to both.

All Scholarship applications must be completed and mailed. We will not manage your application for you. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Due to overwhelming response to this program, we will not be able to get in touch with those students whose applications are incomplete.
