UPPA Storytelling Workshop

Canon & UPPA Storytelling Workshop (Training Young Photographers)

The Uganda Press Photo Award (UPPA) is proud to call all young people for the Canon & UPPA Storytelling Workshop with Canon trainer Georgina Goodwin.

Uganda Press Photo Award (UPPA) was conceived with support from the Foreign Correspondents’ Association of Uganda and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in 2012 as a competition for Ugandan photojournalists and photographers who work hard and sometimes take great risks so the rest of us can stay informed about what is happening. The award’s aim is to promote the best of today’s photojournalism in Uganda, supporting visual literacy as well as encouraging a new generation of photographers by focusing on photographic education through our programmes. It also seeks to remind the viewing public of the importance of a vibrant press for democratic development.
