CatchLight announces today their 2019 Fellows: Sparsh Ahuja, Tasneem Alsultan, Alexandra Bell, and Pierre Terdjman. The CatchLight Fellowship provides four visionaries in the field $30,000 grants to realize a long-form storytelling project or to continue their work as leaders committed to advancing and growing the field of visual storytelling.
In its third year, CatchLight added a fourth Fellowship and opened the call for entries to include innovative leaders in the field. Notes CatchLight’s newly appointed CEO Elodie Mailliet Storm, “This year’s CatchLight Fellows are pushing the boundaries of visual storytelling through both courageous narratives and through innovative platforms, which foster community dialogue and engagement. In a complimentary way they each aim, through their craft and leadership, to foster a better and more empathetic world. We are proud to welcome the new class of visual storytelling leaders to the CatchLight Fellowship program.”
In addition to financial grants, the CatchLight Fellowship offers support for project development and amplification, as well as mentorship opportunities through its vibrant community of creative thought leaders across media, art and entrepreneurship. CatchLight Fellows also have the opportunity to engage with the organization’s media, exhibition and educational partners, The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, the International Center for Photography (ICP), and United Photo Industries, among others.
