ORMS FULL-TIME PROGRAMME IN PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Orms Cape Town School of Photography is seeking applicants for the 2018 February intake of our full-time programme in professional photography. The programme is structured to develop technically refined and creative photographers, who can explore and define their goals, situate their work within a broader and meaningful context and establish a solid foundation from which to build their careers.

Coursework will consist of weekly assignments, group critiques, class discussions, practical exercises, tutorials and individual mentoring sessions. Students are encouraged to be experimental with their project assignments, rigorous in their research and exploration, and professional in their conduct.

The scholarship includes all course fees but excludes printing and exhibition work. The scholarship students will receive a 40% discount at Orms Print. There is also an opportunity for students to do part-time work at the school to offset the printing cost. (In general, one hours work is enough to cover a months’ worth of printing necessary for the course.)

 

The Award carries a monetary value of R100 000. There is one scholarship available

If you have any questions regarding the scholarship, please email Bryce@ormsctsp.co.za
