Nikon Europe is running free photography masterclasses this year in conjunction with the NOOR Foundation. NOOR – named after the Arabic word for light – is a global, multilingual collective of highly accomplished journalists, authors, photographers, artists and filmmakers that focus on documenting, investigating and witnessing our world.
The free masterclass workshops will run in Austria and Spain in the autumn of 2019.
The Austria workshop will take place in Vienna from 14-17 October with three NOOR authors, Andrea Bruce, Sanne De Wilde, and Pep Bonet.
The Spain workshop takes place in Barcelona from 11-14 November with three NOOR, authors Tanya Habjouqa, Sebastian Liste, and Jon Lowenstein.
During each of the four-day trainings, 15 participants, together with the three NOOR authors, will share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to develop visual stories.
The Nikon-NOOR 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.
Participants can get the most out of the experience when they come to the masterclass 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.
All masterclasses are open to young and emerging visual storytellers from all nationalities.
Applications open 29 July and close 8 September.
