You win some you lose some but the important part is to keep trying!

This week I found out that I didn’t receive a fellowship and was turned down by the Magnum Foundation. On a brighter note, a major magazine wants to publish my work, a curator highlighted my project and today I’m off to a really important interview. Ah, you win some you lose some but the important part is to keep trying!

I wrote to the Magnum Foundation and asked them how ti could improve my application for next time and this was a prompt and kind response from them,

“Hi Daphne,

You had a great application – very interesting project investigating of gender and identity. Because Magnum Foundation is focused on supporting documentary photographer, however, we had to prioritize applicants coming from a more traditional photojournalism and documentary photography background.”
It was funny that learning the WHY about the rejection really put things into perspective!
