PDNedu has been a great addition to support
our curriculum at PHS. The content matches
well the diverse types of photography our
students make, from commercial portraiture
to documentary to fine-art to a blend of
it all. When our box of PDNedu arrives in
our classroom, the themes of the magazine
often serendipitously match the content we
discussed the day before, and the articles
and images integrate directly into our class
discussions. Most often the magazines end
up in the eager hands of our most serious
students in our Documentary Honors and
AP Photography classes. Thanks so much
for being one of the rare direct supports
of encouragement and resources to photo
educators and their students.

PDNedu, I just wanted to reach out and thank
you for providing such a great publication
for myself and my students. Our students
have such a variety of interests and your
magazine covers so many different aspects of
photography. The Spring ‘ 17 content ranged
from The Moon 1968-1972 to VR trends. Our
business class discusses the legal issues
and the portfolio class talks about self-[assigned] projects and how to “stand
out” to land your first few assignments.
I have often shared with my students the
photographers and equipment mentioned
throughout the magazine. You are a rock-
solid source of real information.

The Sixth Annual Photoville
One of our favorite fall events will return to Brooklyn Bridge Park this
September. Photoville will take place among a sprawl of shipping
containers along the waterfront from September 13-24. The wide
array of container exhibitions and outdoor installations is always a
unique experience, and the Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery beer
garden and tasty food trucks will keep you nourished as you make
your way through the maze of photography from leading galleries,
publishers, agencies and institutions. It’s free to the public, so check
out their programming to see which seminars or nightly events you’d
like to attend—make sure to add the annual PDN’s 30 panel to your list!

Nikon’s Scholarship Program and

and-coming creative minds, in honor of their 100-year anniversary.
The company will offer a combined $100,000 through the Nikon
Storytellers Scholarship to U.S. and Canadian students pursuing
photography, film, journalism, visual and fine-art degrees, providing
ten students each with $10,000. Keep an eye on nikonusa.com and
their social media pages—they’ll be announcing the criteria this fall and
