Would I be able to enter if I have not studied photography or videography?

I am a videographer, but not a photographer – can I still apply?



Will this be an annual fellowship ie when can I apply?

Application date will be announced on @lampostluminaries first quarter of 2022.


If I don't really have many clients would letters of referral from my lecturers suffice?



Is there an age limit for applicants?

The age limit is between 20 – 40 years old.

I live in Cape Town. Would I be considered if I apply?

All women photographers or videographers would be considered but would have to be based in Johannesburg for the duration of the fellowship.  


I'm a self-taught photographer who's taken up photography in my late 30s, can I still enter?



Are there specific styles of photography more likely to be chosen?
