The Uganda Press Photo Award is proud to present a series of communications seminars for early-and-mid-career photographers and photojournalists in partnership with Visura.co.
This series of talks centres around the creation and management of a professional online presence, and how that can enable photographers to manage their work, connect with media professionals worldwide and market themselves in this very competitive international industry.
