Each year we appoint a writer in residence to contribute to four editions of our online magazine Photography+. This popular digital publication is read by international audiences and features new writing, imagery, and films, giving a new perspective on photography. This is a paid residency and would suit to an early career writer looking to build their portfolio and profile as a published writer.

Each article is commissioned with a full brief from the Photography+ editor, developed in discussion with the writer. Articles must be delivered on time and on-topic and will be edited before publication by the Photography+ editor and copy editor. The editor will help with image research where appropriate. Articles are a maximum of 1000 words, and can include interviews, Q&A’s, essays, and thematic features. There is a fee of £300 for each article.

Why do we collect Equal Opportunities Monitoring data?

We are committed to equal opportunities, with the aim of ensuring that everyone engaging in our programme as an audience member, an artist, or those joining us for employment, receives fair treatment and we positively encourage applications from everybody regardless of age, disability, race, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marriage and civil partnership and caring status.

The information you provide us as part of this opportunity (if you would like to) helps us track and measure performance and progress towards our equality and diversity goals and in promoting inclusion. The information collected will help us to identify disparities in outcomes and experiences between groups, identify trends over periods of time, to investigate the reasons for these differences and put suitable actions in place. To help us achieve this aim we ask you to complete this monitoring form. We collate equality information on age, location, disability, race, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marriage and civil partnership and caring status.The request for this information and how it is used is within the scope of the Data Protection Act 1998 which allows for the collation and reporting of sensitive data for monitoring purposes.
