As part of our Associate Membership programme The Frontline Club are proud to announce our second Networking Event, with the theme of Photography.
We will start the evening with a panel discussion on the impact of citizen journalism on photography. The panel includes Turi Munthe (CEO, Demotix), Olivier Laurent (News Editor, British Journal of Photography), Marc Vallée (Photographer) and Matthew Eltringham (BBC News, User Generated Content) and will be chaired by Ben Hammersley (Associate Editor, WIRED)
The events room and club bar will be open throughout with an informal atmosphere so that there will be the chance for current members, new associate members and our invited guests to meet and talk. Numerous photography organisations will be present for discussion.
In addition to the event we are running three photography competitions. If you would like to take part in any of the competitions please follow the instructions below. Admission is open to all and there will be prizes for the best within each category. The Current Affairs and Portraiture competition winners will be judged by a group of the best photojournalists in the world and the winning shortlist will be exhibited on the night.
