THIRD PARTY EVENT PhotoTALK with WPO: The funding game

Talk November 21, 2012 7:00 PM

The Frontline Club is set to host the first event in a new World Photography Organisation series, PhotoTALK.

This PhotoTALK will provide insights into obtaining funding for photographic projects. Experts and practitioners will hit the key points about grants, bursaries, crowdfunding and more – what they mean, how to find funds and what to think about.

The discussion will cover how to consider formulating your work and vision to help fund your project, adopting a slightly different, carefully researched, way of thinking at the pre-production stage. Although often perceived as an impossible task, there are actually many places that are great for sourcing funding for photography.

Come and join the conversation with:

Canadian photographer Donald Weber, who recently won first prize in Current Affairs for the 2012 Sony World Photography Awards, and runs regular work shops on funding photographic projects.

World Photography Organisation Academy member and award winning photojournalist Carol Allen Storey.

Laura Pannack, a World Press Photo winning photojournalist.

Moderated by Stuart Smith of SMITH design.

This event is organised by the World Photography Organisation.
