VII Community

VII Community fosters exciting opportunities and furthers the tuition-free education of VII Academy alumni. Designed to be a space for open discussion and access to practical collaboration, VII Community provides a career-enhancing network for our alumni worldwide.

VII Community is an education program of The VII Foundation in partnership with PhotoWings. For alumni seeking assistance with login or inquiries, please contact the VII Community team.


In the foundation’s education pathway, ongoing support for our alumni is a vital task. To this end, we created VII Community in partnership with PhotoWings.

VII Community is a network of VII Academy alumni and Foundry Photojournalism Workshop participants that number more than 1,000 practitioners. It offers support for those who have completed our courses and working as visual journalists with online discussions, presentations, and reviews, in-person global meet-ups, and a Discord platform for regular exchanges and interaction.
