Successful applicants will be invited to become a "Nominee Member", a category of membership, which presents an opportunity for Magnum and the individual to get to know each other. At this stage there are no binding commitments on either side.

Magnum is only considering digital submissions at this point. Please fill out the submissions form and upload your portfolio. The deadline for submissions is before midnight GMT January 31st 2020.

Applicants must submit at least two photographic projects (three projects max.) with a maximum 50 images /projects.

Magnum will notify successful applicants by June 30th 2020.

Successful applicants are invited to become a ‘Nominee Member’ of Magnum, a category of membership which presents an opportunity for Magnum and the individual to get to know each other but where there are no binding commitments on either side.

After two years of Nominee membership, photographers then present an updated portfolio to apply for 'Associate Membership'. If successful, the photographer then becomes bound by all the rules of the agency, and enjoys all the facilities of its offices and worldwide representation.
