A dedicated Photographers’ Council has been launched by the National Union of Journalists in a bid to improve representation for photojournalists and videojournalists.
The nationally-elected council will be made up of working journalists and will be the first ever arm of the NUJ to be tasked solely with looking after the interests of lens-based reporters.
It is expected to have four meetings a year, some of which will be done via video-conferencing, with the others likely to be held at the NUJ headquarters at Kings Cross, London.
Nominations to stand on the council are now open. For more information about the positions up for grabs, e-mail: email@example.com
