The Young Photographers’ Mentorship Programme (YPMP) aims to develop the artistic voice and ambitions of emerging photographers. This three-month long mentorship programme encourages them to explore and experiment with image-based work, and deepen their understanding of the creative and professional possibilities in photography. The programme was formerly known as the Shooting Home Youth Awards.
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.
