Note about the video: Please provide the video footage via link. For non-public content, it is also possible to provide a password in the application form. We recommend using video platforms such as Vimeo and online file repositories such as Dropbox or Google Drive. For technical reasons, we do not recommend submitting videos via YouTube, Dailymotion or via a temporary WeTransfer link. Videos whose links do not work cannot be considered.


The fellows will be selected by an international jury. The jury session will take place after the application phase. The applicants will then be informed about the jury decision via mail. The jury’s decision is final and incontestable.


The selected fellows take part in an introductory week in Wuppertal before the start of their fellowship. The following year, they return to Wuppertal for a final week to present their experiences and thus officially conclude their fellowship. The introductory week will take place from September 6 to September 13, 2023.
