Information and Application Form
The Carolina Photojournalism Workshop (CPJW) is an intensive, on-location multimedia project in which a group of students complete a multimedia project in one week. CPJW will be documenting life in and around the Boone area of western North Carolina.

Students will do one story each or work on design and building the site. Gear will be available through JOMC checkout
system. The days are long, starting early and working late. Students are coached daily by professionals, and the group finishes most days with a team meeting and critique.

By the end of content gathering, all stories will be complete and we will have a final public screening. The quality of work is exceptional and has won awards every year. Past projects have been recognized in Hearst, The Webby Awards, SNDies, Best of Photojournalism, Horizon Interactive, AEJMC Best of the Web, and College Photographer of the Year, among others.

Academics
CPJW admission requires permission of instructor. Students enroll for 3 credits for MEJO488 in the first summer session. Students fill out this application and submit it to Professor Davison, with a portfolio, by March 6. If accepted, students will be added to MEJO488 in first summer session and pay tuition as for any 3-credit class.

Please indicate on your application what your experience level is, and what you are capable of doing–photo, video, audio, design or programming. Advanced students, graduate students, and seniors will have priority in admission, but we often accept students with a minimum of one basic Viscom class (180, 182, 187) or an excellent portfolio.

Lodging and Logistics
The base for CPJW will be in a large house near Boone (projected). Lodging is subsidized in part, so depending on enrollment, there will be very minimal cost for lodging and coach expenses (usually $150). Participants need a car and will be responsible for their own transportation and their own meals.
