CRAFTING YOUR CAREER: The Journey of the Editor
Photoville Festival 2021 Sessions On-demand recordings are made possible thanks to our partner, PhotoWings
Photoville is proud to partner with Diversify Photo to host their second set of professional development workshops together.
These workshops are aimed towards experienced and emerging photographers and editors who would like to learn about the various journeys to success that leaders in our industry have taken. This session is geared toward folks who are interested in becoming a photo editor. We will learn about different editor career paths and the in’s and out’s of what it means to be a photo editor in this industry.
The workshops are especially geared towards BIPOC photographers, and are open to photographers anywhere in the world. We are here to support BIPOC and non-Western photographers to begin to change the narrative and have a seat at the table that can make that possible.
Learn how to write successful grants, proposals, and pitches and what it takes to become a photo editor.

About Diversify Photo
Diversify Photo is a community of BIPOC and non-western photographers, editors, and visual producers working to break with the predominantly colonial and patriarchal eye through which history and the mass media has seen and recorded the images of our time.
Our international online database is used by editors at major media outlets seeking to diversify their rosters of visual storytellers. We also create networking, exhibiting, speaking, community-building, and resource-sharing opportunities for our members.
Photoville is a nonprofit organization founded in 2011 in Brooklyn, NY. Our mission is to build a wide, diverse audience for photographic narratives and nurture a new lens of representation, through the creation of unique and highly innovative environments such as our free annual community photo festival.
Since Photoville’s inception, we have been devoted to building an inclusive community of visual artists. We view art as a collaborative process between artists and their audiences, and we believe that public art creates the perfect conditions to foster this creative union.
