A picture is worth more than a thousand words, and its appeal either as a separate entity or as a complement to a verbal story, goes way beyond the strength of the words. It is not a question of pictures competing with words. It is a question of what combination of words and pictures that will most effectively communicate an idea to a reader.
This Training the Trainers Workshop aims to train academicians to provide them with better knowledge and skills for training their students. It also aims to provide practitioners of photojournalism an in-depth understanding of the power and value of photojournalism, combining many practical hands-on aspects of photojournalism together with theory.
