Thank you to everyone who came out to the CatchLight Visual Storytelling Summit at McEvoy Foundation for the Arts. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from all of you who turned out to make this such a successful and inspiring day celebrating the power of visual storytelling.
CatchLight announces today their 2019 Fellows: Pierre Terdjman, Tasneem Alsultan, Alexandra Bell, and Sparsh Ahuja. The CatchLight Fellowship provides four visionaries in the field $30,000 grants to realize a long-form storytelling project or to continue their work as leaders committed to advancing and growing the field of visual storytelling.
On February 12, 2019, CatchLight proudly presented Visions of Justice, a groundbreaking new exhibition at the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office. The opening reception drew one of the largest event turnouts in the space to date. Beyond the exhibition, the event celebrated the transformational journeys of the photographers from incarceration to having their images presented at the Hall of Justice, as well as featured in national media outlets.
As part of the CatchLight Visual Storytelling Summit on Sunday, April 7th, 2019 CatchLight will host the first CatchLight Portfolio Review produced in partnership with United Photo Industries. This is an opportunity for photographers to meet with leading photo editors, museum curators, book publishers and gallery owners for one-on-one portfolio reviews. The number of participants is limited to assure that everyone receives ample time with reviewers. Participation is open to anyone over 18 years old and all types of photography will be considered. The deadline to apply is March 10, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
