DMJX presented at Vilnius Photo Circle Festival
This weekend, the fotofestival Vilnius Photo Circle was held in the capital of Lithuania. The Vilnius Photo Circle consists of two competetions and a festival with screenings and lectures. The two competetions are: the main competition "the Circle of Life" for professionals and the "Homework" competetion for young photographers below 30 years.
Søren Pagter, who had been the tutor and the one to select the finalists and the winner for the "Homework" competetion, was invited to Vilnius to present the five young finalists in the youth competition and to talk about how we teach photojournalism at DMJX.
At the lecture Søren Pagter showed different work made by DMJX students in order to tell about the different workshops and semesters at DMJX - and to show the variety of work made at our school. For instance Søren Pagter showed the two recent magazines, "Lollik" and "Voice". Just like he showed the reportage "Sorte Fugle" by Sofia Busk, some Visual Projects and BA-projects, for instance by Ilaria di biagio, Arianna Sanesi and Mette Frandsen.
