About

Magnum Photos is a co-operative owned agency, run by its member photographers. The agency is self-selecting and membership is considered one of the finest accolades of a photographer’s career.

The process of becoming a full member to Magnum Photos take a minimum of four years. Photographers are only considered once a year, during Magnum’s Annual General Meeting in June, where one day is set aside for considering and voting on potential new members’ portfolios.

Magnum Photos accepts portfolio submissions from all photographers.

Successful applicants are invited to become a ‘Nominee Member’ of Magnum, a category of membership which presents an opportunity for Magnum and the individual to get to know each other but where there are no binding commitments on either side.

After two years of Nominee membership, photographers then present an updated portfolio to apply for ‘Associate Membership’. If successful, the photographer then becomes bound by all the rules of the agency, and enjoys all the facilities of its offices and worldwide representation.
