International Festival of Photojournalism 2008

The International Festival of Photojournalism starts this week in Perpignan. I hope to be able to pop down to the festival on Thursday or Friday, let me know if you’re going. You can follow the festival blog here. There’s a regularly updated list of who will be at the festival.

The first goal of the festival is to reinforce the importance and value of press photography… Each year, new, ever more enthusiastic, photographers come on the scene. In Perpignan, thousands of professional photojournalists are offered an opportunity to meet with their peers, talk about their work or their profession (during the symposium), and talk sales with photo agencies and get hands on experience with new technologies. link
