PDN is conducting a survey of photo assistants: what they earn, what skills are in demand, how they find work, what skills they would like to learn. We need your input if you have assisted in the past 18 months.

It’s a totally anonymous survey, and takes about 10 minutes to fill out. Here’s the link:
