Bayimba Photography Summer School
DATES: 16th July-13th August, 2012
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 30th April, 2012
Bayimba Cultural Foundation is accepting applications from both Ugandan and international photographers (including persons with an interest in photography) to participate in a 4-week intensive Photography Summer School.
The Bayimba Photography Summer School will be held from 16th July 16th till 13th August, 2012 in Kampala and will be able to accept up to 50 participants.
The programme will be composed of technical instructions in basic principles of photography and photo editing during the first week. During the second week, participants will receive further instructions in one of the following five areas of their choice: 1) photojournalism, 2) documentary photography, 3) fashion photography, 4) event photography or 5) nature photography. During the third week, they will do their field work. During the last week of the Summer School, participants will prepare and curate their work for exhibitions. Apart from instructions and practical sessions, the programme also aims at stimulating group dynamics, networking and mutual learning amongst participants and includes group discussions (about photography, photographers as well as participants’ work) and screenings of relevant documentaries.
The Summer School will be led by qualified and professional Ugandan and international tutors. They include Andrea Stultiens (Director of the Bayimba Photography Summer School), Tadej Znidarzic, Will Boase, and Edward Echwalu and others (to be confirmed later).
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The fee for the 4-week Summer School is set at 250 USD for nationals from developing countries (on the basis of the official DAC list, see www.OECD.org) and 500 USD for other nationals, to be paid before the beginning of the Summer School. This fee includes access to the full programme, break tea and lunches as well as materials for the presentation of the final Summer School results. Participants will have to bring their own camera. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lap tops with relevant software (e.g. photoshop, lightroom, aperture); the availability of digital work stations is limited.
Participants are required to cover their own travel expenses, accommodation costs, dinners and all additional expenses during fieldwork. Bayimba Cultural Foundation will assist in finding affordable accommodation options and identifying possible travel support organizations.
As group dynamics, networking and mutual learning are important elements of the programme, applicants are expected to participate during the whole programme. Exceptions can only be made on request and on the basis of work submitted.
If you wish to participate in the Bayimba Photography Summer School, you are requested to submit your completed application form together with a profile/short biography (max. 800 words), a presentation of photographic work (min. 10 and max. 25 pictures, preferably in digital version) and a motivational letter (max. 500 words).
Deadline for applications is 30th April, 2012. Bayimba Cultural Foundation will confirm receipt of your application. The Summer School team will assess the submission received and decide which applicants will participate in the Bayimba Photography Summer School.
