New Photographers Guild is a mentored photography programme preparing recent graduates for professional life beyond education led by Elaine Livingstone, Photographer and Claire Stewart, Photography Lecturer, in association with Street Level Photoworks.

Following a successful programme last year that concluded with the exhibition Departures at Hillhead Library, NPG is now looking for a set of artists to enroll for the upcoming term.

Working in a small team and meeting monthly, emerging photographers will be offered support, guidance and experience in working to a creative brief from initial conception to the final editing process, culminating in a participant-led exhibition.

Aspects of the programme will include: * Guidance in delivery and execution of a professional brief * Industry professional lectures * Peer review sessions * Identifying an appropriate client * Self promotion * Meeting industry standards * Pitching work to industry professionals * Exhibition production

The programme comprises of monthly meetings in Glasgow over this period: while we do understand that sometimes life and work can get in the way unexpectedly, it is important that you feel able to make this commitment before accepting a place.

If you are interested in taking part, please send six images of your own work and a statement (300 words max) to newphotographersguild@gmail.com describing your work, and how you think this opportunity could be of benefit to your creative career.
The deadline is Friday 14th October 2016 at 5pm. Shortlisted applicants will be notified the following week.
Please Note: The New Photographers Guild programme is open to graduates who completed their course in the past two years.

The initial session will take place in mid-late November 2016 (date TBC). The programme will run from November 2016 to May 2017 (exact dates TBC), with a final exhibition taking place in 2017.
