The ISSP International Masterclass is a year-long international mentorship and networking programme for emerging photographers. The programme offers 24 selected participants to develop their personal projects under supervision by some of the greatest tutors we have worked with, as well as invited industry experts. The participants take part in three workshop sessions - two in Latvia and one in Sicily, with regular online feedback in between. The programme is meant for both self-taught photographers and recent graduates from academic programmes, who wish to pursue an extended personal project and take their work to the next level.
