History of Photography in West Africa: A Focus on Nigeria
The Nlele Institute (TNI) announces its first quarter 2021 workshops. Interested artists/photographers can now apply to participate within the one month long open call window. The submission of applications starts today February 1, 2021 and will close in March 1, 2021.
TNI provides technical and thematic workshops yearly (on quarterly basis) to aid the artists’ developmental process. Technical workshops, with the aid of advisors/facilitators from Nigeria (including visiting Lecturers from overseas) provide participants with new concepts, techniques and the latest insights in the development and production of their works. Our workshops also teach creative/critical writing and portfolio presentation. Over the years, TNI have developed several educational programs in mentorships and exhibitions to give the desired visibility to emerging photographers in Nigeria. These programs are used as platforms by the Institute in providing training opportunities in art photography.
To participate, send the following to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- A PDF document containing a short bio (300 words), artist statement (300 words), previous/current/ongoing project of not more than 15 images.
- A self-portrait, 72 dpi and not exceeding 1920 (on the longest side).
The workshops comes with an application fee of N45, 000.00 for each and should be paid to the TNI account upon acceptance.
Our participants will have the benefits and opportunities to have their works reviewed by renowned Nigerian photographers/professionals/facilitators and international photography organizations. Participants will also have the privilege to be part of our 2021/2022 photography exhibitions, festivals and art fairs. Participation in our workshop will offer involvements in Nigeria and internationally visible peak moments in photography and other lens based media.
