Fundraising for photographers
Who would actually be interested in financing my project? How do I put a cost projection plan together? What kinds of public and private funding are available to me? What should I be aware of when applying for project financing? How do I present my purpose to potential sponsors?
Photographers and artists who are in search of financing for their photographic projects are faced with all of these questions. That’s why our day-long workshop deals firstly with hands-on examples of the different ways in which you can locate financing or sponsorship for your project and secondly, passes on the key to successful applications. Possibilities to research for foundations, co-op partners and institutions who may patronise or promote your project, will be introduced. You are more than welcome to present concrete questions and problems. Together the participants will make up the costs projection and financing plan for their actual own projects as well as a significant exposé.
