The Michel du Cille Fellowships will be ongoing – not just one time – and the long-term goal is to support visual journalism education in developing countries in Africa, Foundation treasurer Frank Folwell told News Photographer magazine today.
The Fellowships are funded by donations made in du Cille’s name to the Foundation by the late photojournalist’s colleagues and friends.
