Brigitte Lacombe Photography Mentorship Contest

Start date:
Oct 17, 2011
Ability Level:

Registration Closed

The Doha Film Institute and world renowned photographer Brigitte Lacombe are giving one budding photographer from Qatar a unique opportunity to enter the Brigitte Lacombe Mentoring Programme. Go on the set of DFI’s second international production, Mira Nair’s ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, to learn Lacombe’s craft in documentary photography.

DFI’s collaboration with Lacombe was born out of mutual admiration for the stories coming out of the MENA region and a desire to profile the people behind them. In 2010, DFI commissioned the ‘I AM FILM – Work In Progress’ to the document cinematic icons and rising talents of the Middle East and the rest of the world. ‘In Production’ is a new collaboration where Lacombe joins DFI behind the scenes to capture DFI’s co-productions.


Send us 10 compelling images in line with the theme ‘Portrait & Reportage’ along with a written statement explaining why you are the ideal candidate for this unique mentorship and exploration of visual culture.

Deadline for submissions: 24 October 2011
