Magnum Photos is very proud to offer one scholarship opportunity for photographer to join our upcoming New Narratives in Visual Storytelling with Yael Martínez taking place in Cusco between October 29 – November 3, 2024.

The successful applicant will be chosen based on the quality of the work submitted and the ability to demonstrate how this course will benefit their careers.


Applications are open to photographers living in Peru, regardless of their nationality. Please note that the scholarship only covers the tuition fees. Travel and lodging costs will be at the expense of the scholar.

We encourage applications from those who are underrepresented in the photography industry including women (female-identifying), people from lower socio-income backgrounds, LGBTQIA+, BIPOC and those from ethnic minority backgrounds. We also welcome applicants from a range of educational backgrounds and therefore do not require a minimum formal qualification.


Successful applicants will be chosen based on their ability to demonstrate their commitment and motivation in pursuing a career in photography. We will consider both cohesive and compelling bodies of work as well as how this opportunity will benefit applicants’ practices and personal development.

Required materials

– One PDF file including 1 or 2 photo stories with no more than 30 images in total
– A Statement of Purpose explaining why you are applying and how this opportunity will benefit your practice

Applications are free and do not include any fees.
