39th Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar
Early Registration & Contest Opens
The 39th Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar will be held Friday & Saturday December 2-3, 2011 at the Westin Atlanta Perimeter North Hotel. The annual seminar – which draws attendees from the U.S. and Canada – features Friday workshops, our Saturday speaker series, our print auction, a Saturday trade show and a photojournalism print and multimedia contest. Each evening, we’ll hold portfolio reviews where you’ll interact with our speakers, workshop leaders and peers.
First – about our contest.
This year, we’ve made entering our photojournalism contest easier for you and eliminating that last minute dash to FedEx. Now all entries will be submitted via our FTP server through our partnership with our friends at US Presswire.
