Workshops – It seems the Eddie Adams Workshop 2010 invitations have been sent. The list was not public on their website the last time I checked, but I know I won’t be attending, because I received my rejection email yesterday. Would love to be able to go. I wish EAW would reconsider their admission policy of taking in only 10 internationals along with the 90 US citizens. The workshop has such global significance within the industry that the 1 : 9 ratio of ‘internationals to Americans’ seems a bit outdated. Maybe something along the lines of 50:50 would be more appropriate. Or maybe this is just sour grapes on my behalf. But damn… it just seems so tough getting in there, especially as an ‘international’….
Congratulations to those who got into the workshop this year though!
