A Young Person Recommends...
Since 2011, The Photographers’ Gallery has supported young people aged 25 and under to write reviews of current photography exhibitions and books, which are published as part of the A Young Person Recommends… series. Reviews are commissioned monthly to be featured in our Teachers and Educators’ E-Newsletter, and are archived here on our website. Young people are paid to write their review, reimbursed for exhibition entry or towards the price of a book, and given writing tips and editorial advice.
A Young Person Recommends… is part of our commitment to providing spaces for young people to share ideas, opinions and experiences with a general audience and to develop critical thinking skills. This is complemented by our Outset Teen Tours programme, which offers 13-19 year olds the opportunity to research, develop and deliver a twenty-minute public talk on one of our exhibitions.
If you are under 25 and interested in writing a review, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
