Multimedia Super Hero, Western Kentucky University Professor, Fulbright Scholar and Multimedia Immersion Teacher, Josh Meltzer, sends word about one of his projects coming up in January, the Truth With a Camera Workshops in Quito, Ecuador. If you’re interested in photojournalism and social justice, definitely check out this great opportunity, registration is open now and filling quickly:

Truth With A Camera workshops is pleased to announce and open registration for the next workshop which will take place in Quito, Ecuador from January 9-17, 2010. Registration is now open, and typically the workshops have filled up fast.

Our mission is to educate photojournalists, not only in current technologies, but in understanding cultural differences and similarities and to contribute to truth, ethics, and social justice.

Our goal is to reflect honesty, sensitivity, and intelligence in photojournalism, and to use these as tools to inspire, educate, and promote change in the world around us.

Through the workshops, photojournalists will experience international location coverage and develop an understanding of their social responsibility to provide a voice to all members of society while stressing truth and ethics in an effort to bring about social change.

With a population of 2 million people, the capital of Ecuador is one of the most modern in the country, although the presence of social inequality and the urban poor remain powerful reminders that thousands of people live below the line of extreme poverty.

This will not be a vacation. During this intensive week, you will work with Ecuadorian students from some of the best universities from across the country. At the end of each day, you will edit your images with some of the leaders in the field of documentary photography from the U.S. and Ecuador. Your work will be shared with our partnering NGOs, which gives you the opportunity for your work to stand as a witness and defense of the lives of your subjects. It is an opportunity to strengthen your skills while donating your work to an NGO at the same time.
