Three of our 2021 grant recipients will also receive year-long mentorships with members of the DPPF’s Advisory Board. Emerging photographers Katelyn Mulcahy, Jaden Powell, and Tyler Schank will be mentored by 2021-2022 mentors Deanne Fitzpatrick, Jed Jacobsohn, and Jamie Squire.

Grantees and mentors will form a personalized plan for each grantee – including but not limited to development of a photo project or story; building career skills (work flow, technical skills, credentialling, assisting, running a business and more); refining portfolio, website and resume; and networking with other leading professionals.
