Call for applications for 2014 Diploma in Photojourn


Applications for admission to the 2014 Diploma in Photojournalism are being accepted until Wednesday, 15 January 2014. Admission is limited to 12 students.


The Diploma in Photojournalism is a five-course blended learning program that provides comprehensive university-based training primarily to working photojournalists, journalists and editors. Three courses are fully online, namely, Principles and Ethics of Photojournalism, Visual Literacy for Photojournalists, and Storytelling: Newswriting for Photojournalists. Two others — Single and Moving Image and Portfolio Development and Publishing — are hybrid courses with the conventional classroom classes taking place at Ateneo’s Loyola campus in Quezon City. Students build a portfolio as a capstone project.


The program, started in 2006, has been jointly designed by ACFJ and World Press Photo, the Amsterdam-based media NGO.


Since its launch, 79 journalists from eight Asian countries have completed the program.
