I'm here at the first panel for the morning, an International panel featuring a bunch of what looks to be amazing photographers from around the country -- and even Iran.
For the organization, I'm also blogging live from this session, so I may not be able to do the same for both blogs. So, if you want my play by play on international coverage, check out www.jaws07.blogspot.com.
A little bit of plagirizing from the post I just did there:
The session, an international panel, will discuss how "international issues are being covered at home, how hard it is to pitch international stories related to women, women reporting overseas and how to find -- and best tell -- the untold stories of women overseas."
The panelists are:Peg Simpson, freelance writer from D.C.
Paola Gianturco, documentary photographer, author
Lois Raimondo, staff photographer The Washington Post
Sahar Sarshar, videographer for voice of America, and video/radio for the Iran chanel.
We're having a little trouble getting all of the technology in the conference room set up, but things should begin shortly continue...
