For our newest Mentorship Award, Metro Imaging partnered with SATORI Magazine, offering the opportunity to win a twelve-month tailored Mentorship prize, catered to an emerging visual artist. The ongoing prize includes creative and conceptual advice, professional and business development, marketing identity and PR, technical guidance, networking introductions, plus a solo feature in SATORI Magazine.

After long review process, cutting the entries down to a shortlist of five, the winner’s selection took place on Friday 11th Jan 2019. The judging panel included representatives from SATORI and Metro Imaging, plus external industry influencers.

We are thrilled to announce the overall winner is Gin Rimmington Jones! A huge congratulations to Gin, we’re very excited to be working with her over the coming year.

Co-Founders & Creative Directors of SATORI magazine, Seb Camilleri and Duncan Woods, commented:

‘We were both instantly struck by the strength and quality of Gin’s work, and how in line with the aesthetic, and ethos, of SATORI it is. It’s beautifully mysterious, poetic and philosophical.
We feel that based on the sophistication of her images and approach to her practice, we would have been more than happy to publish it in the magazine as it is, so in turn, we are very excited to see how her projects will grow and develop over the mentorship program. – We’re both thrilled and intrigued as to where Gin’s work will go next, to be a part of a journey with her, and what wider conversations will emerge as it evolves.’

We would like to thank everything who entered the competition, and another huge well done to our shortlisted artists.
