The “Athens-Voice – Creating an editorial” workshop is designed as a real-time photographic experience. Participants will be called upon to create original work on a series of themes that they will first hear about in the first day of the course. The themes will be assigned by the editors of the weekly free press newspaper Athens Voice. The results of the workshop will be published in the upcoming issue.
Participants will have one week to develop pictures on the theme, under the guidance of an experienced photoeditor and the editor in chief of Athens Voice Aggeliki Birbili.
