Announcing the Launch of CPJW 2010: Little Switzerland

CPJW 2010

We’re proud to announce the launch of the 2010 Carolina Photojournalism Workshop: Little Switzerland.

In May this year, during the seventh annual Carolina Photojournalism Workshop, 19 students produced a diverse collection of stories that document life in and around the small mountain town of Little Switzerland, N.C. The base camp was located at Wild Acres, a beautiful retreat located on Pompey’s Knob, a mountain just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, at an altitude of 3,300 feet.

Situated on the edge of Pisgah National Forest, the area surrounding Little Switzerland boasts of all those things we love about western North Carolina, from scenic vistas and ancient forests to artisans and guitar-pickin’ heroes.

We welcome you to view these stories and more at
