The Shooting Home Youth Awards is a mentorship programme that gives young photographers aged 15 to 23 an opportunity to learn from some of the most exciting talent in the industry and refine their visual voice. Formerly known as Junior Shooting Home and taking off from our emerging photographer mentorship programme Shooting Home, the Shooting Home Youth Awards aims to help participants craft their own visual style and understand different opportunities in the field of photography. Participants are selected via an open call process.
The Shooting Home Youth Awards takes off from our earlier mentorship programme, Shooting Home, which ran from 2003 to 2016.
Shooting Home ran as an annual programme designed with the belief that ‘home’ is the first step for aspiring photographers to explore their professional careers. The programme brought together a community of mentors (established photographers, visual artists and curators), to create a supportive environment for emerging photographers to develop as professionals.
