The NOOR Foundation is concerned with the encouragement and support of young photojournalists and documentary photographers around the world and particularly in areas where access to photography education is scarce. We facilitate educational initiatives – workshops, masterclasses, seminars, lectures, mentorship, school visits and other educational activities – in close collaboration with educational institutions, sponsor partners and NOOR’s professional photographers, all experienced teachers and lecturers. Through our ongoing partnership with Nikon we have offer Masterclasses around the world since 2009. To realize our projects we seek the collaboration of NGOs and foundations, and the financial support of grants, subsidies and sponsor partnerships.
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. NOOR-Nikon educational programs have successfully trained more than 350 students from more than 80 different countries and counting.
The Nikon-NOOR Academy is graciously supported by Nikon Europe
