Saturday, September 12, nine amazing visual journalists, free and open to the public – and a chance to win camera gear. What more could you ask for?
For 44 years, the Mountain Workshops have educated hundreds of participants to become better storytellers by working in small groups with some of the best visual journalists in the country. The rich tradition of the Mountain has produced photographers and videographers that have gone on to win Pulitzer Prizes, publish books and land jobs as visual storytellers nation wide.
This year has given the Workshops a chance to offer a different program for a wider audience, no experience necessary. On September 12, the Mountain Workshops are proud to present Mountain Sessions, a one-day line up of speakers that will inform, inspire and ignite passions for visual storytelling during these challenging times.
Photojournalism and video will be represented in three different forums moderated by leaders in their industries. Learn how some of the top professionals in photojournalism and documentary film are covering the significant stories of this year. Hear from experts and the masters on how to continue to hone your craft during this intensive one-day educational webinar. You can RSVP for just one or all three of these sessions, select the RSVP button from our web site and choose your session(s).
Since its beginnings, the Mountain Workshops has been at the heart of the WKU Photojournalism program’s educational mission. It remains the program’s best example of what can be achieved in journalism education outside of the classroom with the support of journalism professionals donating thousands of hours of their time and expertise, generous sponsors, and a dedicated staff of WKU Photojournalism teachers and students. This experience will be no exception to our educational standard.
