Description

Now in its thirteenth year, the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop offers majority world students and those from underrepresented communities in G20 countries who could not otherwise afford it a chance to learn from some of the world’s most well-respected photojournalists and photography professionals. In 2021, Foundry brings participants together to learn visual journalism in an online celebration of our industry across the world.
 
This year due to ongoing COVID-19 travel restrictions, Foundry will be virtual and multi-national. Classes will be offered in Arabic, English, Farsi, French, Kurdish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian, and Spanish. Instructors will hold a series of three classes in the weeks leading up to the workshop, which will be held online 10-12 December, 2021. During the workshop students will have access to student and faculty presentations, lectures, and portfolio reviews for a few hours each day.
