From the Magnum website:
During the Magnum Workshop Toronto at Contact, students will participate in an intimate 5 day shooting workshop with their choice of one of five Magnum Photographers: Stuart Franklin, Constantine Manos, Alec Soth, Chris Steele-Perkins and Alex Webb with Rebecca Norris Webb. In addition to the dynamic within each workshop, there will also be ample informal time for cross pollination of viewpoints and commentary with the other teachers as well as the other students.
Participants will produce individual projects over the course of five days with daily review and editing sessions within their groups. Focusing on story formation, visual literacy, and personal vision, these intimate, intensive masterclasses form the center of the Magnum Workshop Toronto. Prior to the workshop, each accepted applicant will be sent specific directives from their selected workshop leader.
The Magnum Workshop Toronto is aimed at photographers who are dedicated to pushing their own personal photographic boundaries. This includes both professional and amateur photographers, but requires participants to arrive ready to work and to take their photography to a new level. Students are required to submit samples of their work for review before being accepted. The first deadline for acceptance is March 30th, and qualified applicants will be selected through a combination of the merit of their work and their personal statement, and the order of their application’s receipt. All applications received after April 10th will be reviewed, space permitting. Due to the fast pace of the week, participants are expected to arrive prepared to produce and edit their projects digitally. Students must bring their own digital cameras. For those students who would like to shoot film, they may do so but must have all film developed at their own cost and meet all required deadlines.”
