Magnum Foundation

There are presently no open calls for applications.

The Magnum Foundation champions in-depth, independent documentary photography that fosters empathy, engagement, and positive social change.

We support, train, and mentor the next generation of photographers and seek to increase the impact of both historical and contemporary documentary photography in the digital age. Our programs encourage compelling, independent documentation, active collaboration with media and grassroots organizations on distribution strategies, and the innovative presentation and exhibition of high-quality documentary work.
