Launched in 2009, The annual Photographic Award is one of a plethora of opportunities for young photographers delivered through the educational partnership between Magnum Photos and the creative network, IdeasTap.
Now in it's third year, Magnum Photos are delighted to announce the twelve shortlistd photographers for the 2012 award.
Each of the shortlisted photographers will receive a mentoring session with a Magnum photographer, £60 of book vouchers from our partners Blurb and have their work printed, framed and exhibited in September.
Six finalists will then receive £1,500 to shoot their dream project. They will create a Magnum in Motion style multimedia essay and attend a second mentoring session.
Ultimately one winner from each age group will be awarded a £5,000 prize and a much sought-after internship – one at Magnum’s London offices and one with the Magnum in Motion team in New York.
