Event: The Enquiry Desk In Session on Tuesday 27th March & Wednesday 28th March 2012
Venue: Pick Me Up Contemporary Graphic Art Fair, Somerset House, London.
The Enquiry Desk In Session takes place on 27th & 28th March 2012 at Pick Me Up, giving emerging talent an exciting opportunity to present their work to a panel of industry professionals. Alongside leading illustrators, the panel will include commissioners within advertising, fashion and publishing. Be prepared as potential commissions and internships could be on offer!
The reviews will take place in the activity space at Pick Me Up, in the heart of the fair and you will be expected to ‘pitch’ your work to the panel who will then offer advice and constructive feedback. Your chosen portfolio will be projected on to a screen for the panel and Pick Me Up visitors to see.
So this is also a chance to show off your talent and get noticed by art collectors and agents visiting the fair. Gain confidence and experience from publicly presenting your work. Free entry to Pick Me Up will also be given to all selected presenters.
Submissions for the chance to be one of the selected presenters are now open!
