Rethinking Photobook Funding Models
Featuring: Nancy Borowick, Jake Naughton, Sara Terry, Jason Koxvold
Friday, September 13 | 4PM – 6PM
Location: Workshop Tent
Have a photography book in mind, but don’t know how to fundraise or work with publishers? Running a Kickstarter campaign could help galvanize and grow your audience—and fund the first run of your book.
Hear from Kickstarter’s Thought Leader Nancy Borowick, and a group of photographers and publishers, on how they got their projects off the ground. Then get individual support for your own photography book project, to take it to the next step.
All workshops are FREE but require a $10 refundable deposit to reserve a space. Walk-ins welcome based on availability.
