STRUCTURE & EXPECTATIONS

Mentees will be paired with mentors after being selected, and individual mentees may work with one or more mentors during the course of the year-long program (from October 2021 – September 2022).

The expectation is that the grantee and mentor collaborate together to form a personalized plan for the grantee for the year to aid in goals specific to them. This may include but is not limited to:

  • development of a personalized photo project or photo story; honing story-telling skills, with the end result being a set of pictures to be published at the end of the term
  • structuring a more efficient work flow
  • perfecting their portfolio, website, resume; help with Interview skills
  • networking and introductions to others on the DPPF advisory board or within the industry who might aid in advancing their career
  • discussions and instruction about equipment or technical photographic skills
  • assistance with the business side of the job: how to invoice, contracts, etc.
  • advice on real work experience: assisting jobs, credentials, coverage of a live event

TERMS & CONDITIONS

Awardees and mentors will sign and adhere to the DPPF Code of Conduct.

The DPPF will solicit feedback from both awardees and mentors at regular intervals throughout the year. A member of the DPPF administration will always be available for support for all participants.
