12 September 2012: The World Photography Organisation (WPO) is proud to announce the inaugural Student Focus conference dedicated to the subject of photography education, The World Photo Educators’ Symposium.

The first conference of its kind, The World Photo Educator’s Symposium will bring together leading professors of photography from across Europe and the US to discuss the future of photography education. Taking place at Photokina, Cologne, Germany from the 22-23 September, the conference will be hosted by Sony and the World Photography Organisation as part of its Student Focus programme.

Award-winning educator and Executive Director of the US-based Society of Photographic Education (SPE), Virginia Morrison, will lead the symposium.

Virginia commented: “SPE is pleased to be able to participate in WPO’s symposium for international photographic educators. Our leadership has identified a strategic need to reach out internationally to increase collective awareness of the issues and challenges facing the dynamic world of photography education and image-making today.

“We are looking forward to a rich conversation that will include such topics as students, teaching and making art; online learning; thinking digital; curriculum; the internet; impact of photographic imagery; and community and collaboration. We are eager to engage with new and diverse audiences and identify intersections of interest. This forum will help SPE, WPO, Sony and its participants to find ways to broaden our collective educational base, resources and contemporary practices and help us in our quest to provide leadership in photographic education.”

One of the delegates taking part, Adrian Mott, Course Director at LCC (London College of Communication, UK) said of the symposium: “It represents a unique opportunity for the international exchange of ideas for those involved in photographic education. It will lead to a better understanding of approaches and cultural differences in photographic education.”

The debate will be published as a White Paper on the future of photography education and distributed to the 220 universities worldwide that are part of the wider Student Focus programme.

Ania Wadsworth, Student Focus Manager at WPO, adds: “This symposium is a fantastic opportunity for photography educators around Europe to come together and discuss teaching practice and benchmarking within this sector. With the knowledge that what is being discussed is also being distributed to fellow photographic educators from Canada to Australia. The attendees have a platform to instigate qualitative discussions that can generate better and far-reaching enhancements within the industry.”

In addition to the educators symposium, the professors will each bring a student from their university to take part in a number of master classes and group portfolio reviews. These will be run by renowned British photographers Steve Pyke and Jonathan Worth alongside Director of Photography for GEO magazine, Ruth Eichhorn.

Student Focus is the world’s largest student photography programme and competition. Two hundred and thirty universities from around the world take part involving over 20,000 students.
