Aged between 16 and 25? Photographer? Fancy getting some awesome career guidance from some of the best in the business? The guys at IdeasTap are offering 10 subsidised places at Magnum’s Professional Practice seminar in Birmingham over the first weekend in December.
The line-up includes Tony Bell, the Picture Editor of the Observer; Client Engagement Manager of 24 Productions, Rhiannon Reid; Head of Photographs of Birmingham Central Library, Peter James; Dewi Lewis of Dewi Lewis Publishing; Cultural and Education Manager of Magnum Photos, Fiona Rogers; and Head of International Picture Desk of ActionAid, Laurence Watts.
Places on these seminars usually cost £250+ VAT and are normally heavily over-subscribed. If you’re an IdeasTap member, however, you can apply to skip the queue and pay just £50 (+ VAT), instead. You’ll need to submit five photos to your IdeasTap portfolio and 100 words or fewer stating your case for a place. You’ve until 17:00 on 17 November to do so.
The seminar is taking place at the Photography Department of Birmingham City University, Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 December 2011. Both days’ sessions begin at 09:30 and end at 17:00.
Full details and the application process are over on the IdeasTap website.
