Each year we appoint a writer in residence to contribute to four editions of Photography+, our online magazine. This popular digital publication is read by international audiences and features new writing, imagery, films and podcasts, all giving a new perspective on photography.

This is a paid residency with a £1,500 fee. As well as delivering four articles, the writer in residence will need to be available for four editorial planning meetings throughout the year with the Photoworks team.

We work with a copy editor on Photography+ who will edit all content for publication online and our team will help with image research for each article.

Applications for the 2022 Writer in Residence are now closed. Sign up to our newsletter bellow for further updates!

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.
