Light Work Residency

Light Work invites between twelve and fifteen artists to Syracuse to devote one month to creative projects every year. Over 400 artists have participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program, and many of them have gone on to achieve international acclaim.

The residency includes a $5,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual, along with an essay commissioned by Light Work. Work by former Artists-in-Residence is also part of the Light Work Collection.

The deadline for 2025 residency applications is July 1st.

Application and Deadlines

Our international residency program is open to all artists working in photography or image-based media, from any country. Applications must be submitted by the posted deadline. Applicants will receive an e-mail from SlideRoom confirming that we have received an application. While submissions are open throughout the year, our main selection committee review concludes in the late fall and notifications will be sent no later than December of each year. Please be patient in this process. We will contact you should we need more information, and to notify you of your application status when the time comes.

If you would like to submit a physical application by mail (or necessary physical items to accompany your digital application), please see the online application for what to include and mail to:
