call for applications: international diploma

 

The Danish School of Media and Journalism, NOOR Images, and the World Press Photo Foundation join forces in a new international diploma program for documentary photographers and photojournalists

 

Three of the major players within documentary photography and photojournalism are collaborating on an international diploma program in documentary photography. The program is designed to equip participants with skills to work effectively in the new media economy.

 

The transforming media landscape has rapidly decreased opportunities in editorial assignments for visual journalists. This means that the skill set of documentary photographers and photojournalists has to change.

 

That is why the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX), NOOR Images, and the World Press Photo Foundation, have joined forces to launch a Diploma in Documentary Photography - thereby combining outstanding educational formats and content from DMJX, instruction from the world renowned documentary photographers of NOOR Images, and the World Press Photo Foundation's unique insight into current industry practices and debates.

 

The diploma program is approved by the Danish Ministry of Education making it a formal program within the international ECTS-system. At the same time the program is geared for enabling students to work in the real world, which is a key focus for the partners, who want to refine the skills of those already working with documentary photography, as well as those working with journalism or communication in other ways, whom have some visual media skills and ambitions.

 

A complete diploma – or single modules

The diploma education consists of different modules and it is possible for participants to finish a complete diploma by combining modules that fit their needs and wishes. In addition, it is possible to take a single module or selected modules if participants want to learn more about a particular topic.

 

The first course will begin in May 2017 and cover Documentary Photography Projects. The second course, The Short Documentary Film, is scheduled for the fall.

 

“As a documentary photographer you can’t just rely on assignments or tasks coming to you. You have to be able to develop, research, pitch, fund, plan and edit a photojournalistic story. Or to put it in another way: You have to be able to make your own story, that’s the focus of the first course,

 

says Søren Pagter, head of the popular photojournalism education at DMJX, and continues:

 

In the second course the students learn to supplement still photos and moving images with video and sound thereby strengthening the visual storytelling toolbox.”

 

Projects and individual coaching

A feature of the courses is that students will create actual projects during the course and receive individual coaching before, during and after the production of their story.

 

The first course starts and ends with workshops in Amsterdam, and students will work on their projects in the time in between.

 

“We, at NOOR, believe that it’s part of our mission to encourage and support photojournalism and documentary photographers around the world. Education is an important tool to tell stories that will impact humanity, raise awareness, and enhance a better and free understanding of the world,”

 

explains Clément Saccomani, managing director from the NOOR Foundation.

 

Three other courses are being developed and will be announced in the fall of 2017. They cover photographing people, reaching audiences with ones work, and business skills.

noor-nikon academy upcoming workshops

 

NOOR Foundation and Nikon are excited to announce our 2017 educational program - the NOOR-Nikon Academy. Early this spring, the NOOR-Nikon Academy will launch with a series of free-of-charge workshops for young, aspiring documentary photographers taking place in The Netherlands, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

 

During each of the four-day trainings, 15 participants, together with three NOOR member photographers will share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to develop visual stories.

Participants can get the most out of the experience when they come to the workshop with a body of work they are currently developing, editing, working on and/or thinking about how to share with audiences. Thus, applicants are encouraged to include this work and indicate what they want to explore in relation to the work in their application portfolio and motivation statement.

Participants can look forward to intensive communication with NOOR photographers and their peers on subjects ranging from how to develop and edit a photographic story or project, to the nuances of the international photo market.

 

 

The NOOR-Nikon Academy is a unique opportunity to learn impactful visual storytelling, further develop personal vision, strengthen ongoing projects and gain new knowledge and contacts in an intimate and interactive environment.

 

Each workshop is led by a diverse and unique combination of three NOOR member photographers. All experienced teachers and lecturers, NOOR photographers are actively engaged in their own documentary practices, current debates in the field and in the development of the next generation of photographic talent.

 

 

Since 2009 NOOR and Nikon have partnered on education programs encouraging and supporting young photographic talent around the world. We have built strong collaborations with an international network of young photographers, photography professionals, cultural organizations, journalism and educational institutions.

Reactions from previous NOOR-Nikon educational programs:

 

“Photography is part education and part evolution of one’s talent. This was my first workshop and it was an enriching experience. I learned more in these days than probably I could have learned in a year working in the field.”

 

   - Bogdan Chesaru, Romania (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Bucharest, Romania)

 

“The workshop was fantastic! Meeting with NOOR photographers and very talented people from our region is a great opportunity. You should continue organizing programs for regional cooperation among young photographers. I got great tips about storytelling, editing, grants and bookmaking!”

 

   - Ozge Sebzeci, Turkey (NOOR-Nikon Masterclass, Istanbul, Turkey)

 

“The masterclass helped to draw an overall picture of my career. The experiences shared by NOOR helps to make a long-term plan.”
