The Eddie Adams workshop in conjunction with Nikon cameras is sponsoring the 22nd annual Barnstorm Workshop competition for aspiring photographers.
The workshop is a photojournalism competition wherein 100 ambitious shutterbugs, functioning as 10 teams of 10, are mentored by efficacious professional photographers and photo editors during an intensive four-day seminar with one student having the chance to win a $10,000 scholarship from Nikon.
Nikon will provide the competitors with professional digital SLR cameras, a host of lenses and filters, the popular new D300 camera, and HD video equipment as well as access to a top-of-the-line digital photo and multimedia studio to better foster an environment rich in multimedia.
Participants will have the chance to work in a variety of photographic styles including photojournalism, fine art photography, studio work, portraits and underwater stills.
"Photojournalists and the publications who hire them for their expertise are constantly searching for new and creative ways to reach their audience," claims the executive director of the Eddie Adams Workshop, Alyssa Adams.
The workshop is named for Pulitzer-prize winning photographer Eddie Adams, a photojournalist who first came to prosperity with his iconic pictures of the Vietnam War.
