On April 10th I met with Mr John W McIntyre, Deputy Chief of Mission from the US Embassy in Brunei for an informal discussion on photojournalism. Among those invited were photojournalists from Borneo Bulletin, Media Permata, The Brunei Times & United Daily News. Ideas and opinions were discussed and shared as to how the embassy could organise future events that are interesting and exciting for photojournalists including the possibility of a photography contest from which photographs may be showcased at the embassy’s new establishment.

The irony of the typo befits the story where “guild” refers to “the medieval association of craftsmen or merchants” or “the association of people for the pursuit of a common goal”. Photojournalists are the modern day “guildsmen” 🙂
