One December 21st, 2018 we started 8 days workshop of Storytelling in Tehran, Iran. During these time selected 11 students started to develop their ideas, researched and prepared themselves for shooting under supervision of 5 instructors. Through this 8 days, we had 3 long day indoor workshops and 3 half a day workshops during the development and the rest spent to create and shoot the projects. Our team even spent their Christmas day at the workshop camp to make sure everything is going forward.
We are delighted that every single participant could finish one full project with 12 images. They have worked separately on a one week project with the theme of social issues. Last day was quite a long one, as we had to make sure each project had finished, captions are accurate and the statement is relevant. In this year of Tehran’s workshop, we have sponsored one documentary photographer selected by Podium Collective and another female documentary photographer from the Women Association of photojournalists. At the end of the workshop, NVP team chose the best produced project and that projects received 20,000,000 Rials and 3 months support for further development.
