The IPA Mentorship Program is an intensive 3-month program by Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA) for those who wish to further their personal photographic vision and goals.

The IPA X SHS Photo Mentorship Grant recipient will be encouraged to investigate and interpret history (local or national, private or public), topography, community and locality to author creative site-responsive projects using photography as a medium.
Participants may choose to work on a place or neighbourhood in Singapore of personal significance, or a site of national heritage or historical interest. Research material, be they family or public archives, text, drawings and photographs, serve as raw ingredients to meditate and author the individual responses.
Our previous grant was awarded to filmmaker Clarice Lee and her final project The Island of Everlasting Utility was presented by Singapore Heritage Society at the Ubin Day 2016 community event in Pulau Ubin.
The grant recipient will be mentored by Kevin WY Lee, founder of Invisible Photographer Asia. More information about the IPA Mentorship Program: http://invisiblephotographer.asia/ipamentorship/
