About the War Zone Freelance Project
The War Zone Freelance Project is dedicated to the work of local and international freelance journalists covering conflicts worldwide. WZF arranges exhibitions, journalist medical safety trainings, online sessions, talks and discussions, sharing and supporting the work of freelance conflict journalists and provoking debate on the important and consequential role they play in bringing news out of conflict areas to the international public. The WZF Sessions is an online platform for freelance journalists working in conflict areas and journalism students interested in covering conflicts.
The images from the War Zone Freelance Exhibition are part of a larger multimedia project offering education and background on current conflicts, sharing the stories of those affected while highlighting the experience of working independently as a freelance journalist in a high risk vocation.
In the run up to the launch of their 2017 Exhibition, we will be exhibiting work from The War Zone Freelance Exhibition 2016 (formerly shown at the Frontline Club London; 61 Paris and the Brussels Press Club) which portrays the work of freelance journalists covering current conflicts throughout the Middle East.
The 10 images are spread throughout the Department, five are in the War Studies Meeting Room K6.07 and five have been displayed in the corridors on the 6th and 7th Floors, King's Building, Strand Campus.
