Deadline to apply for LOOK3 PITCH has passed, kindly see Portfolio Sharing event.

An opportunity to be invited for a meeting with presenters from the morning session and many more industry professionals.

To help photographers gain experience speaking with gallerists, editors, curators, art buyers, book publishers, media companies and other professionals, LOOK3 is offering a practicum session as a companion to the day’s morning class. Those accepted into the LOOK3 PITCH will have an opportunity to apply lessons learned in the morning class and put their new knowledge into practice, engaging in a “pitch” with photo professionals.

Photographers registered for the morning session “Artists: Meet Your Markets” may apply to the afternoon program “LOOK3 PITCH.” Until May 27th, artists can upload their completed application form and send a selection of 10 images to LOOK3 PITCH through a link provided. Participating industry professionals will have the chance to pre-screen the applicants and prioritize the work they would like to see.  

The morning presenters + additional professionals from diverse markets will be participating in the LOOK3 PITCH, including representatives from TIME Magazine, AARP Magazine, Candela Books and Gallery, MediaStorm, National Geographic Magazine, Zeke Magazine, VQR Magazine and many more; check back for complete roster.
