MPW.71 / Boonville
Chloë Ellingson / MPW.71
Now Accepting Applications for the 2020 Workshop.

The 72nd Missouri Photo Workshop will move to an online format for this year. From September 20 to September 26, faculty members will mentor smaller teams of photographers through their stories. Photographers will be based in their own hometowns. With an increased faculty to photographer ratio, we’ll be able to preserve the story pitch and documentary photojournalism experience.

The application deadline for MPW.72 is July 15, 2020. You can apply online here. There is no fee to apply.

Any questions regarding applying can be directed to workshop directors Brian Kratzer, David Rees, or Jim Curley.
