For more than a decade, NOOR Authors have documented our growing climate crisis caused by fossil fuel production and material consumption along with the political forces enabling this planetary catastrophe. Through our work we have also pointed to solutions to help ensure sustainable human presence on this planet. The need for action is urgent.
As world leaders meet in New York City next month and climate actions are planned world wide, we will dedicate the month of September to sharing stories on the environment from our archive and works in progress. Please follow these stories on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
We encourage our media partners, researchers, and our community to do the same.
The Nikon-NOOR Academy Masterclass in Vienna, Austria, will take place from October 14 to October 17, and the Nikon-NOOR Academy in Barcelona, Spain from November 11 to November 14.
During each of the four-day trainings, 15 selected participants will work together with three NOOR authors as their tutors, to share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to create more impactful visual stories.
NOOR and the NOOR Foundation are committed to encouraging aspiring photojournalists and documentary photographers. Masterclasses are provided free of charge for all participants, made possible with the continued support of Nikon Europe.
All masterclasses are open to young and emerging visual storytellers from all nationalities and locations within Europe. We highly encourage visual storytellers from Austria and Spain to apply to their local country’s masterclass. There are no age restrictions, however the masterclass is more suited for emerging photographers at a early/mid career stage. Applicants are required a basic knowledge of English as the masterclass will take place in English. To apply to the Nikon-NOOR Academy, please apply through our Picter Call For Applications page (links below).
