Tshepo Magoma, a South African researcher; Paz Bernaldo, a Chilean development practitioner, researcher and activist; and Subhashish Panigrahi, a digital storyteller, researcher, documentary filmmaker have been awarded this year’s Yoti Fellowship. The winners will spend a year working on local digital identity and identity-related issues in South Africa, Argentina and India. 

Yoti launched their Fellowship Programme after research showed that the digital identity sector tends to begin with the technology and work its way down to the people who use it. Yoti received over 120 applications for the Programme from over 30 developing countries including Yemen, Mexico, India, Ethiopia, Philippines, Egypt and Cambodia. 

Tshepo, Paz and Subhashish will commence their Fellowships on October 1. Subhashish will carry out focused multimedia research designed to amplify the challenges and opportunities within marginalized groups that are being - or going - to be affected most by Aadhaar, India's biometric-based digital identity system.

Applications for the 2020 Yoti Fellowship Programme will be open from next April.
