Magnum Foundation CFPs: Photography in Collaboration – Migration and Religion

Deadline: 13 July 2018

Magnum Foundation is inviting proposals for Photography in Collaboration: Migration and Religion, an initiative for photographers to expand upon their practice by working with creative partners from other disciplines.

The foundation is seeking proposals for projects that are careful interdisciplinary explorations at the intersection of migration and religion, broadly defined, and that explore how forms of social organization transform under the pressures and processes of migration. Applicants are encouraged to explore a range of stories that illuminate this theme and to challenge familiar representational tropes.

Selected photographers will collaborate with BBC’s audio and digital teams to create innovative audiovisual treatments. Applicants can elect to be considered for this opportunity.

They will support up to five projects that further understanding of the politically significant and vastly complex intersections of migration and religion.
