Canon launches the Student Network

Canon has unveiled a new program to help engage students in the world of photography. The Canon Student Network (CSN) is designed to help aspiring photographers studying photography or equivalent courses to take their next step with imaging and further develop their love of photography along with real world business advice.

The initial phase of the programme, which launched on 23 September 2013, rolls out to 11 universities across the UK and Ireland and provides tailored experiences, opportunities and offers to help the students develop as their course progresses. The scheme is open exclusively to photography students and students who use photography as an element of their degree.

Initial universities consist of Ravensbourne, Norwich University, City of Westminster College, Leicester College, Reid Kerr College, Middlesex University, Plymouth College of Art, University of the Arts London, University of East London, University College Falmouth, Griffith College.

Access is easy and free for eligible students. Those in first year simply need to be studying photography or equivalent course, within one of the initial roll out universities and sign up to the free Project 1709 – Canon’s beta online imaging management system. Students in their second year will also be required to own a current Canon DSLR and lens.  A course for students in their third year will be rolled out in the next academic year – there will be no extra requirement for students in order to join.

To sign up students need to register at www.canonstudentnetwork.co.uk
