Noor, Nikon and the Cape Town School of Photography invite photographers to submit their portfolios for selection for the 2012 Noor-Nikon Masterclass in Documentary Photography to be held 26-30 March 2012. Applications will close today, 22 February 2012.
The companies support documentary photographers from emerging markets all over the world through the organisation of annual motivational masterclasses. The free masterclass will be accessible to young and aspiring documentary photographers and photojournalists who are South African or are from the SADC region, with a valid passport.
During the five days of the workshop, 15 participants, together with three member photographers of Noor and its MD, will share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to pick up and develop stories. Each day consists of intensive communication with the photographers on the subjects of technical features and the peculiarities of the international photo market. It is a unique opportunity to gain new knowledge, contacts, learn to tell stories in a visual language and develop personal vision.
The workshop is free of charge; travel and accommodation will be organised by the local organisation (possession of a passport and travel insurance is required to apply).
