What is Kanavu?

Photography and Film have the power to tell incredible stories and shine a light on important issues and hidden tales. Which is why diversity in this space is critical; but the gender gap behind the camera still persists.

Kanavu Fellowship is a one-year-long program in photography and film-making for candidates identifying as female is a small step towards addressing the issue. 

Who is it for?

The fellowship is open to candidates identifying as female.
