Ukrainian Youth to Train in National Geographic Photo Camp 2010

National Geographic Photo Camp

Twenty students from the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in Ukraine will undergo a five-day photo camp under the tutelage of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Jay Dickman and fellow National Geographic contributing photographer Matt Moyer.

The Ukrainian youth will have a unique opportunity to learn about and document the coastline of the Crimean peninsula during National Geographic Photo Camp 2010 from Monday, June 14, to Friday, June 18. They will photograph, edit and design a portrait of the Black Sea and the Crimean coast, with special attention to the region’s natural environment, economic resources and the students’ own connection with water.

The Photo Camp is presented in partnership with Internews, an international media development organization that is currently working in Ukraine with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
