Atlanta Photoj Seminar & Contest Info

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. Contest rules and information may be found at
Early registration opens today. We’re already the best value in pj education and networking, but early registration will save you even more! Find out more at
