TERMS & CONDITIONS
By registering above, you understand that you are entering your photography portfolio into consideration for a hands-on photojournalism workshop on location in Georgia. The registration fee of $1,250 covers lectures, discussions, and reviews, but students are responsible for transportation, food, and lodging while attending.
The Collective Quarterly will review all portfolios and offer invitations based on merit. The $28 application fee is non-refundable but will count toward the total payment if selected.
The tuition fee for the workshop is $1,250. If selected, a 50% deposit of $625 is due by Sunday, June 25, with the remaining $597 due by Sunday, July 2.
All fees are non-refundable. However, in the unlikely event that The Collective Quarterly cancels or reschedules the Event, The Collective Quarterly will make a reasonable effort to notify you and, if necessary, reimburse the full registration fee. The Collective Quarterly is not responsible for reimbursing travel expenses if the Event is canceled.
We wanted to create a workshop that could be done on a budget while still offering unparalleled access to amazing stories and professional critique. The infrastructure in Darien is such that attendees can choose their own financial path—whether that's dirtbagging it to save money or spending a little extra on comfort. Upon acceptance, we'll be sending out information on discounted rates at hotels where we've reserved a block of rooms.
Considering the high caliber of our panel of speakers, we feel it’s a rare and valuable opportunity to have them all in the same place together (compared to the legwork required in setting up solo meetings during a costly trip to New York or LA, with no guarantee of gleaning in-depth insight from top professionals.)
This workshop carries a heavy journalism focus, led by editors and photographers with impressive pedigrees. We're particularly interested in gritty, artistically told, human-interest pieces that demonstrate a photographer's ability to quickly build a level of trust with their subjects that allows them to make intimate images. It is a course for self-starters who are willing to get up early, stay up late, and give the story the amount of passion and time it deserves. Attendees should be prepared to challenge themselves to their limits.
Students will work with an edit team comprised of a recognized, professional photo editor and an award-winning photojournalist. Enterprising students should also seek out feedback and casual critique from the other edit teams (and fellow attendees) in order to maximize the number of perspectives on their work.
Our speakers will be around for the entire week, with ample time to chat and connect during the off time around town. We've purposely limited the number of attendees to best complement a roster of six speakers—and we’re confident that if you want time and are proactive, you’ll get as much as you want.
We believe your career is worth investing in. Portfolios get you in the door (so let’s take yours to the next level). But even when you’re in the door, our industry is built on personal relationships (so let us introduce you to the decision-makers you should know). We believe that we can help our audience and creative community find sustainable creative work. And if we succeed, we'll have an even better community to work with.
