The ISSP International Masterclass is a year long practice-based programme for emerging photographers. The masterclass runs yearly, offering two thematic classes with some of the greatest tutors we have worked with and invited external experts. The programme consists of three workshop sessions and continuous feedback in-between, supporting the participants in the development of conceptually strong long-term projects. The programme is meant for both self-taught photographers and recent graduates from academic programmes, who wish to pursue an extended project and take their work to the next level. 24 participants are selected based on applications.
