The Jimmy Nelson Foundation is creating teams and projects that will be documenting the world’s last indigenous cultures from their own personal perspective. For this, we are looking for young, curious, creative, talented individuals from around the world.


These teams will master the art of film, photography and storytelling and share it with the planet on an unique digital platform.

Each project takes around one to two weeks. The locations will range from Africa, to Asia, to Europe, to America and the Pacific. Since the projects are competitive, we advise you to carefully read through the requirements before applying.


The journey of ‘Circle of Cultural Connection’ is a collection of small projects, which consist of cultural festivals and celebrations.


Our mission is to record the pride that lies beneath these diverse peoples which will bring us back together and form a basis of mutual respect, and understanding for all humanity.



A note to us, feel free to tell us details such as: Do you have any health problems we should know about? Is there a festival the Foundation should look in to?


*Please note that all applicants after applying will be added to an online competition-based database, from which the most suitable applicants will be selected for the projects. You will receive a conformation email with a link for the participation form. Please check your email or junk mail.  FAQ and Expectations
