Northern Exposure 2023

March 31-April 2, 2023

Northern Exposure 2023 is set for Friday, March 31 – Sunday, April 2 at the University of Minnesota’s Hubbard School of Journalism and Mass Communication in Murphy Hall on the East Bank.

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 at Stub and Herb’s. On Saturday there will be great keynote speakers and breakout sessions with optional dine around 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).

Sign up for Dine Arounds on Saturday, April 1 at various local restaurants.

We’ve got an amazing speaker lineup, including William Albert Allard, Julio Cortez, Daniella Zalcman and Greg Heisler. Plus breakout sessions with Carlos Gonzalez, Mike Davis and many more!

Find what you need to know about getting here and getting around.

After March 1: $75/pros and $20/students, Friday breakfast and boxed lunch, Saturday breakfast and lunch, Sunday breakfast, and a t-shirt. Saturday only, $50, Sunday only, $25.

On Site Registration (March 31 – April 2): $75/pros and $20/students, Friday breakfast and boxed lunch, Saturday breakfast and lunch, Sunday breakfast. Saturday only, $50, Sunday only, $25. T-shirts available as inventory allows.
