Portfolio Day at De Correspondent

5595060fd64f38194385228

After being an image editor for over eight years now I know that image makers often have really good ideas for interesting journalistic stories. And after almost two years De Correspondent has grown as an suitable platform to present these projects.

So what I want to do from now on is to organise a portfolio day every couple of weeks to invite image makers from all sorts and backgrounds to share their ideas in the hope it can be the start of new collaborations.

Deadline for applying for this first Portfolio Day is August 5, 2015. Stay tuned here for the upcoming days.
