Can you work hard and have fun at the same time? Are you looking for a workshop you can afford? Would you like to work elbow to-elbow with some of the best visual editors in the country? Can you bowl?

The 2010 Kalish is open for business and accepting applications for the 21st edition of this venerable visual editing workshop. It’s an opportunity to learn cross-platform/multimedia skills from a faculty of Emmy and Pulitzer Prize winning visual editors. Brian Storm, Geri Migielicz, Sue Morrow, Randy Cox and Kenny Irby will be on the faculty this year along with other industry experts. The core faculty has worked together on this program for many years and most of them stay through the duration of the workshop providing ample time to answer your questions. Last year we closed registration at 30 people and attracted a diverse group of working professionals, students and professors from six countries. It was one of our most successful workshops and this year should be better.

The Kalish enjoys a great reputation industry wide and after much thought, and vigorous eye-brow raising, The Kalish board, with the support of the National Press Photographers Foundation, have decided to keep the registration fee for this year’s workshop at $500. It’s the lowest rate you’ll find for a workshop of this quality. You’ll receive four full days (June 4-8) of intense hands-on instruction in cross-platform visual storytelling.

The traditional Kalish values of ethical decision making in journalism and management remain. The workshop begins with a primer in FinalCutPro, progresses through picture selection, multiple picture editing and news judgment, to multimedia and management.

The days are long and packed with real-life decision making exercises in visual storytelling. You will be expected to make difficult decisions about visual storytelling and then defend them in front of the group. We work hard and then we play hard. Please ask any Kalish alum about their experience with us, they are our best references. You can hear testimonials and learn more about the workshop at
