The Masterclass is open to 15 professional photographers with a nationality and residency from one the following countries within Southeastern Europe: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania or Serbia.
Participants must work as a professional photographer in the field of photojournalism and/or documentary photography, with a minimum of 2 and maximum of 15 years professional working experience. Furthermore, they must have at least intermediate English speaking and writing skills.
Participants will be invited to participate in a Masterclass in Berlin, Germany, from 1-8 September 2010. After the Masterclass, all participants will be asked to produce a photo story on a certain topic outside of your home country, but within the region of Southeastern Europe. In order to complete the assignment, they will receive a grant. The results of this assignment will be presented to and discussed with the other participants and tutors in a final three-day seminar at the beginning of December 2010 in Berlin, Germany.
Coinciding with the final seminar in Berlin, ten photo editors from Southeastern European media will be invited to a five-day workshop on visual literacy. ‘SEE New Perspectives’ Masterclass for professional photographers from Southeastern Europe is organized by World Press Photo (www.worldpressphoto.org) in partnership with the Robert Bosch Stiftung (www.bosch-stiftung.de).
