Inkanyiso Photography Scholarship 2018
It is of great excitement to introduce to you our photography scholarship candidate who has been nominated by Inkanyiso Media to study with Orms Cape Town School of Photography.
The scholarship, which has been awarded to Lulu Mhlana, is a 6-month Part-Time Photography Programme to begin on 09 July 2018. Inkanyiso Media is excited about this scholarship as it is the first time in its history to award the scholarship to someone outside Zanele Muholi’s (founder) photo participants circle, however we are glad we did so, as we are confident in our decision.
Lulu Mhlana is a self-taught photographer, creative writer and a Communications Graduate from the Tshwane University of Technology. Having been born in Mount Frere in the Eastern Cape, raised in Durban, studied in Gauteng, and now recently settling in Cape Town, she has seen and experienced things that have inspired her to be an artist and to tell authentic stories of South African people. Having an educational background in Advertising and Media she understands the sensitivities that come with the arts and how to articulate something in a way her audience can understand, relate and appreciate.
“Words cannot express how grateful I am to be awarded this scholarship to study photography at Orms. Photography to me is not just a hobby, it’s a passion, something I literally cannot picture my life without, and being given the opportunity to study it is a great stepping stone in building and enriching my career as a photographer. I’d like to extend my warmest gratitude to Zanele Muholi and the Inkanyiso Media team for investing in me, so that my dreams too can become a reality” Lulu
Inkanyiso Media congratulates her studies and her journey as a photographer.
