So the Photographers Gallery is open again and with a great series of exhibitions and projects, the new website looks good too and I love the new logo
One of this year’s projects is an exhibition for new photography graduates called
FreshFaced+WildEyed which showcases the work of recent graduates from across the UK. Now in its fifth year, this annual event highlights the breadth and diversity of photographic practices emerging from UK institutions, giving graduates a public platform at a critical point in their careers.
Following an online application process, selected finalists have their work exhibited at The Photographers’ Gallery and online, and the opportunity to work with a mentor for twelve months.
At The Photographers’ Gallery, London, 15 – 30 September 2012, and online at ffwe.thephotographersgallery.org.uk
THE MENTORSHIP SCHEME
This year, for the first time, we are offering this scheme in addition to the exhibition opportunity. A number of mentorships will be awarded to finalists, who will be matched with a mentor whose professional/ creative background is relevant to their practice. The mentor and graduate will enter into a yearlong dialogue, offering participants invaluable feedback on their current work and the broader professional and critical context into which it fits.
All applications must be submitted through this site by 18.00, Monday 2 July 2012
