Discovering your competitive side

6 September, 19:00
Free to Photofusion Members

The benefits competitions can have on furthering your career.

To accompany the call for submissions to Photofusion Salon 2012, we are hosting a Members’ evening all about competitions, facilitated by Miranda Gavin, deputy editor of HotShoe Magazine.

Last year’s winner of the ‘HotShoe Photofusion Award’, Chloe Sells, is a fantastic example, having continued on from this competition to recently being selected to exhibit as part of The Photographers’ Gallery ‘FreshFaced + WildEyed 2012’ annual exhibition targeted at recent BA and MA visual art graduates across the UK.

Miranda will discuss topics such as…

  • Media convergence – how to get in the loop
  • How best to promote yourself
  • What to look out for with competition – costs, T&Cs
  • Artist residencies and bursaries
  • Crowdfunding
