The Maine Media Workshops (formerly the Maine Photographic Workshops) is an international non-profit educational organization offering year-round workshops for photographers, filmmakers, and media artists. Students from across the country and around the world travel to the harbor village of Rockport, Maine to attend courses at all levels, from absolute beginner and serious amateur to working professional. The Young Artists Program offers creative course opportunities for high school students. Professional certificate and MFA programs in photography, film, and multimedia are available through Maine Media College. The school's curriculum honors historical forms and practices of image making while embracing new technologies and modes of creative expression.

The Maine Media Workshops offer over 400 workshops and master classes in the fields of photography, filmmaking, and multimedia. Each year it attracts over 2,000 students, from professionals to beginners. Workshops range in length from a single weekend to a seven-week work-study program and a 12-week summer residency.
