About the Project

The Carolina Photojournalism Workshop tells stories of towns and cities around North Carolina. Since 2004, a group of multimedia students from the University of North Carolina travel to these unique locations with a group of professional coaches to produce a documentary website in a week. Students immerse themselves in the lives of the area’s people, and work 24/7 on a video production that gets publicly screened on the final night. The stories are also published online to continue to provide an intimate cultural record for the public.
