Applications are now open for now open for the Market Photo Workshop’s Gisèle Wulfsohn Mentorship programme.

The Market Photo Workshop has announced an opportunity for the development of young photographers; the 2013/14 Gisèle Wulfsohn Mentorship in Photography. The mentorship will run over a year and will assist a photographer with the development of a body of work.

The Gisèle Wulfsohn Mentorship in Photography will provide an emerging photographer the infrastructural support to develop a body of work over a year. The mentorship has been created by the family of the late Gisèle Wulfsohn to honour her memory and her work; and is seen as an opportunity to continue her approach and interests in photography. Wulfsohn dedicated her life and photography to awareness, openness and respect; she worked on issues of democracy, HIV/AIDS education and positive identities, social inclusion, gender issues and women’s rights, and maintained a commitment to education and social change.

Aimed at developing emerging voices that are committed to similar issues, the mentorship is supported by the Friends of the Market Photo Workshop and the Centre for the Study of AIDS at the University of Pretoria.

Submission deadline is January 24 at 12 noon. For more information, contact Bekie Ntini, Coordinator: Mentorships and Training on 011 834 1444 or email:

The Market Photo Workshop is situated in Newtown, Johannesburg, at 2 President Street (entrance Bus Factory).
