Northern Exposure 2024

April 12-14, 2024

Northern Exposure 2024 is set for Friday, April 12 – Sunday, April 14 at the University of Minnesota’s Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Murphy Hall on the East Bank of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis.

Northern Exposure is an anything-but-the-same-old conference to talk photography, video and storytelling. For the last several years, photojournalists have shaped the way we receive news about the pandemic, unrest, social justice and more. It hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been important. Let’s gather to learn from each other and inspire one another.

Join us on Friday for a student-focused program (everyone is welcome to attend) with a Friday night get-together open to anyone. On Saturday there will be great keynote speakers and breakout sessions with optional dinner options (on your own), and a partial day Sunday with more keynote speakers and workshops.

A light breakfast is provided each day and lunch is provided on Friday and Saturday, included in your registration. Pre-registered attendees will receive a t-shirt. (Day-of registrations may only receive a t-shirt if available).
