Learn while working in the field!

This 3-day workshop will provide intensive, hands-on training in audio, video and photojournalism. For beginners-intermediate, it is not necessary to have experience with digital audio, still photography or video to successfully participate. Our goal is to give participants the basic skills needed to produce compelling narrative multimedia stories. Perfect for editors, reporters, photographers, freelancers, students and educators alike!

We're excited to announce that Steve Mellon and Stephanie Strasburg of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette will be joining us as coaches at this year's workshop. In addition, Chad McNeeley and Kris Bosworth of Nikon will have the latest cameras and lenses to loan to participants. The workshop will be held during the Special Olympic Pennsylvania Summer Games at Penn State, which draws several thousand athletes from around the state.

Continuing updates and details about the program and schedule can be found on the workshop website.  Check out the 2017 Project from the workshop attendees.

Class is limited to the first 20 registrants.  Registration cost:  $215 for PNA members; $115 for Pennsylvania college students; and $315 for non-members and out-of-state participants. Overnight accommodations and meals not included.
