Counter Foto will regularly organize ‘Artist’s Residency Program’ and the first of such will commence from 1 July, 2016.
Through a judging process of the applications, the residency will be offered to a photographer. The residency program will allow the photographer to stay and work in Bangladesh for a month. This will be a wonderful opportunity for all the international photographers and it will give the visiting photographer to develop a story in Bangladesh or anything that he or she wants to do.
Counter Foto will design a dedicated website for the residency program. Using Counter Foto’s international network, the program will be shared globally to ensure a good number of applications. All major photo agencies -Magnum, VU, Panos, VII, Noor and etc., all major photography festivals will be notified individually about the residency program. On top of this, every major photography publication will also be included in the campaign program.
