When & Where
The Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar
The Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar was founded in 1973 by a group of photojournalists representing newspapers, magazines and wire services. Its reason for being is to promote the highest standards of photojournalism through an annual educational conference and a photography contest judged by working photographers.
Speakers throughout the years have included Pulitzer Prize winners, Photographer of the Year winners, major magazine and wire service photographers, influential directors of photography, respected educators in photojournalism, academia, and others significant in this profession. Founded as a regional event, the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar has grown to become one of the most prestigious photojournalism seminars in the world.
The Seminar will be held at the Hilton Atlanta Northeast near Peachtree Corners and close to I-285 and I-85 north. There are dozens of shops and restaurants nearby for a reasonably priced quick bite to eat or for socializing.
