Magnum Photos is proud to partner with Create Jobs for the second year in a row to offer a free 6-week photography course to young Londoners, aged 18 to 24 years old.

This intensive course seeks to equip London’s young creative talent with the connections, skills, knowledge and inspiration to tell stories that are important to them and that inform and impact social change. Through a range of practical workshops and activities, critique sessions and talks, twenty-five young Londoners will develop their own visual language and the skills required to understand photography’s ever-changing marketplace.

Under the guidance of Magnum associate Sohrab Hura, the participants will develop a body of work for an exhibition and magazine, responding to a live brief developed with It’s Nice That, Lecture in Progress and Anyways, one of London’s top creative agencies and publishers.

The workshop will culminate with an exhibition and symposium to be held from Thursday 5 till Saturday 7 December.

Where & When



This workshop is free to attend. Travel and lunch expenses are covered.

Selection and Requirements

Workshop participants should be between 18 and 24 years old, living in London, unemployed and not in full-time education. We encourage applications from those who are underrepresented in the industry including disabled, D/deaf and neurodiverse people, LGBTQ+ people, people from black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds. We also welcome applicants from a range of educational backgrounds and therefore do not require a minimum formal qualification.
The participants will be selected by Magnum Photos and Create Jobs. The masterclass is limited to 25 participants.


Applications are now closed.
