In the autumn 2014 students of photojournalism from 32 schools in 16 different countries all worked on the theme "family life" for their stoires.
Now, the huge Family.Life website with all the students' stories from all over the world has been launched and DMJX is the largest contributor of all schools - 12 projects made by DMJX-students are currently available on the website and a few more DMJX-projects will be added in the near future.
The 12 stories, which are on the site right now, are:
- "Blood Matters" by Barbara Leolini and Sari Kettunen.
- "My Name is Claudia and I Love my Life" by Claudia Gori.
- "The Egostripper" by Anders Rye Skjoldjensen and Katrine Marie Kragh.
- "Nunaga, My Country" by Sisse Dupont.
- "Love Keep Us Going" by Casper Holmenlund Christensen.
- "My Little Lost Mother" by Katharina Bauer and Mohammedreza Soltani.
