World Press Photo holds a group discussion with Tunisian photographers to discuss their current work situation and learning needs in preparation of the first Reporting Change workshop. 15 September 2012 – Tunis © Hamideddine Bouali.
World Press Photo is organising three Reporting Change courses in the Middle East and North Africa, with the goal of helping to develop the technical, journalistic and visual skills of local photojournalists.
Held in Tunisia in December, Morocco in January 2013, and Algeria in February 2013, the workshops are open to photojournalists from these three countries, as well as from Libya. Participants must have a minimum six months and maximum five years of experience working as a professional photojournalist, and a basic understanding of English, says World Press Photo.
Entry is free, and tuition, travel, accommodation and insurance costs will be paid by World Press Photo.
The workshops form part of Reporting Change, a joint initiative by World Press Photo and Human Rights Watch, launched earlier this year. The courses will be followed by two additional workshops around the themes of storytelling and multimedia.
The deadline for registration is 11 October, but the formal application can be submitted until 15 October. For more details, visit workshop.worldpressphoto.org.
