Light Work is excited to share the application for the 2022 Artist-in-Residence program. Don’t rely on a photo finish, get your submission in early before the July 1, 2021, 11:59 p.m. ET application deadline!

Each year Light Work invites 12-15 artists to participate in its residency program, including one artist co-sponsored by Autograph ABP.  Our international residency program is open to all artists working in photography or image-based media, from any country. Artists selected for the residency program are invited to live in Syracuse for one month. They receive a $5,000 stipend, an apartment to stay in, a private digital studio, a private darkroom, and 24-hour access to our facility.

Work by each Artist-in-Residence becomes a part of the Light Work Collection and is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual.
