How to Apply

We are no longer accepting nominations for the 2016-2017 IP Emerging Documentary Producers Fellowship. Information on how to apply to 2017-18 Fellowship will be available in Summer 2017. 

Please review our Frequently Asked Questions for more information. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at


This fellowship is created to support documentary producers. We want to hear from the documentary community — who are the producers who are creative, resilient and eager to grow? Who would benefit from mentorship and becoming a member of a new network of documentary producers?

Applicants MUST have worked on at least one documentary film in a key crew position such as Producer, Line Producer, Co-Producer or Associate Producer. They may NOT have worked as "Producer" on more than 5 feature-length documentary films. Applicants must be based in New York City, or be willing to travel for all of the workshops.
