The Eddie Adams Workshop strives to be a resource of opportunity for newcomers to the photojournalism industry, and we are committed to creating an inclusive and safe environment for all participants. We are deeply troubled by the allegations outlined in the Columbia Journalism Review article, and we have taken steps to address these issues. Last year we implemented our Code of Conduct which includes a zero-tolerance policy against discrimination and harassment. All Workshop participants are required to sign the document, and any violation of the policy will result in immediate, permanent removal from the Workshop. In addition, we are working with outside counsel to develop specific procedures for addressing allegations of misconduct, as well as mandatory sexual harassment training at the commencement of the Workshop. We expect to announce more details about the training and protocols soon.

The Eddie Adams Workshop is an intense four-day gathering of top photography professionals, along with 100 carefully selected students. The workshop is tuition-free, and the students are chosen based on the merit of their portfolios. Nikon has been the workshop's major sponsor since its inception.
