The NOOR Foundation is concerned with the encouragement and support of young photojournalists and documentary photographers around the world and particularly in areas where access to photography education is scarce. We facilitate educational initiatives – workshops, masterclasses, seminars, lectures, mentorship, school visits and other educational activities – in close collaboration with educational institutions, sponsor partners and NOOR’s professional photographers, all experienced teachers and lecturers. Through our ongoing partnership with Nikon we have offer Masterclasses around the world since 2009. To realize our projects we seek the collaboration of NGOs and foundations, and the financial support of grants, subsidies and sponsor partnerships.
