Magnum Foundation’s Photography and Social Justice Program builds capacity through critical explorations of photography and social change. Each year, the program supports a diverse, international group of Photography and Social Justice Fellows who are passionate about challenging injustice, pursuing social equality, and advancing human rights through photography.


Magnum Foundation covers the cost of participation, including all educational and programmatic activities. Fellows also receive a modest stipend to support the production of their projects. The program is produced in partnership with the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism.


  • Applicants can be documentary photographers, artists, and photojournalists, activists who use photography in their change-making practise, or scholars who incorporate images and image-making in their research and scholarship
