Søren Pagter nominater for Joop Swart Masterclass
Søren Pagter has been selected as nominator for the World Press Photo's Joop Swart Masterclass.
Each year, the World Press Photo selects 12 young, promising photographers for their prestigious masterclass. To be able to select among talented photographers from all over the world, the World Press Photo has restructured their nominating system. Now, they want a large group of nominators from across the world to co-operate with them in the nominating process.
Søren Pagter will, each year, nominate one or two photographers for the Joop Swart Masterclass and he'll assist his nominees in making their port folio for the selection process.
The first young photographers will be nominated in the first couple of months of 2014.
Today Sofia Busk was on the talkshow Lounge on Lorry talking about her project Black Birds, which won a gold medal at CPOY earlier this month.
