The Photojournalism and Documentary Photography Programme (PDP) was established in 2005, with the aim of broadening the availability of photography training for aspiring photojournalists in South Africa, the sub-region – and further afield on the continent*. The PDP focuses heavily on inculcating a critical awareness of socio-political issues, cultural contexts, and contemporary media practices and perspectives, as they appear within the broader South African landscape. The methodologies and perspectives employed throughout the course are specific and contextual, and would suite students with a keen interest in African affairs. Students from other parts of the world who have a proven interest in exploring and documenting issues in Africa may also apply for the PDP. In keeping with the ethos of the Market Photo Workshop, there is a particular emphasis on recruiting learners from disadvantaged communities and from sectors of the media that may have limited exposure to important debates on photography (notably media in outlying and rural areas).
