October Meeting: Funding Visual Journalism

18th October, 2011

In this month’s branch meeting we have a panel discussion on alternative models of funding & distribution for visual journalism. Looking at how the landscape of photojournalism & documentary film is changing and moving, and how new technology & tools can help fund, distribute and form projects.

Speaking on the panel:

  • Street photographer Nick Turpin, part of the in-public collective. Having successfully published ‘10 years of in-public‘, ‘PUBLICATION’ magazine & recently the documentary film ‘in-sight‘ directly online, Nick will be talking about new ways of content distribution.
  • Journalist & editor Olivier Laurent from the British Journal of Photography. Olivier’s written extensively on most new developments in the photographic world and will be talking about crowd-funding, grants & other new models and how he sees them changing the way the industry works.

Our meetings are open to non-members, but the final section will be branch business. The meeting is 6pm-8pm with a social gathering in the pub afterwards.
