Foundry Photojournalism Workshop in Manali, India

Passing this along ...

I wanted to let you and your students know about the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop that will be held this year in Manali, India in July. The workshop is intended for PJ students and young professionals who want experience with international reportage. Students are expected to work independently on a story under the guidance of their teachers. This year we have an amazing list of faculty including Ron Haviv, Ami Vitale, Andrea Bruce, Michael Robinson Chavez and the Bombay Flying Club will be teaching a special multimedia course. After shooting all day, there will be nightly presentations and discussions regarding the logistics of working on int'l projects. We are completely non-profit and no one makes a dime off of the workshop. Our esteemed faculty and dedicated staff all donate their time.

Last year the first Foundry workshop was held in Mexico City and was, on all accounts, a smashing success. This year, we are reserving at least 20 slots for South Asian journalists, who receive a substantial discount to ensure that we have a diverse student body. We are also offering several merit-based scholarships to emerging talent from the US and Europe.
