Posted on 6/2/2011 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Corbis Images will sponsor the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, VA from June 9-11. The Festival is billed as “three days of peace, love and photography” and will feature exhibits and on-stage appearances by many illustrious photographers, with additional exhibitions, outdoor screenings, and projections.

Over three days and nights historic downtown Charlottesville will be transformed into a living image with photographs hanging in the trees, projected in storefront windows and on buildings, and exhibited in all the galleries. The festival is designed to bring together the international photography community, creating opportunities for attendees and artists to share images, ideas, and inspiration.

“The LOOK3 festival is an important event for all types of photographers and industry veterans,” said Anil Ramchand, Director, News, Sports, Entertainment at Corbis. “We are honored to be the exclusive media broadcast sponsor, responsible for creating a global platform for creativity, inspiration and imaginative collaboration.”



Reaffirming its commitment to editorial photography and premium photography, Corbis will have a team from Documentary; News, Sport & Entertainment as well as Contributor Relations on site to attend the festival and provide real-time updates of the event via live blogging and social media. Content will be available on the LOOK3 blog, LOOK3 Facebook profile as well as the Corbis Contributor Gateway Forum to ensure those unable to attend can still participate in the fun. In addition to broadcasting events, Corbis will be posting interviews with three key personalities and curators at the festival, which will be available for Corbis contributors via the Contributor Gateway.

“Corbis is a leader in the visual community and shares our belief in the power of visual media across communities,” said Andrew Owen, Managing Director of LOOK3. “We selected Corbis as our exclusive media broadcast sponsor to ensure that people all over the world can experience the work and opinions of important industry figures.”



The LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph will take place on June 9-11 in Charlottesville, Virginia. For more information, click here.
