Pitching For The Front Page is for budding photojournalists looking to understand how to get their photographs and projects published.

Delivered by the Picture Editor of The Guardian Australia and working photojournalist Carly Earl,  this course introduces students to the pitching process at a broad variety of global masthead publications , provides a break-down of what works in a pitch, what doesn't and why.

Illustrated by slideshows demonstrating examples of work in the field, Pitching For The Front Page ends with portfolio review sessions intended to provide students with feedback on their projects specific to an editorial context.

This course runs at the same time on the same day, once a week over two weeks with a maximum class size of eight participants.
