2012 "Home" Mentoring Programme
In the summer of 2012, we expanded our Mentoring Programme to include 2 teams in London (a Commercial Team and an Editorial team) and teams in Bristol and Glasgow. Running in conjunction with the charity's North American programme, the Mentoring Programme hosted 18 teams across the US, Canada, Asia, and Britain. All teams were assigned a "home" brief which each photographer was asked to interpret it in his/her own way.
The work from the "Home" Mentoring Programme will be exhibited at one of London's leading photographic galleries, Margaret Street Gallery, from the 7th-16th January 2013.
