Corbis supports “Peace, Love and Photography” event as the exclusive media broadcast partner for the second consecutive year
Seattle, Washington (April 11, 2012) - Corbis, (www.corbisimages.com), a leading digital content and services provider for the creative and entertainment communities, today announced its partnership with the LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph. For the second consecutive year, Corbis will be the exclusive media broadcast partner of the LOOK3 festival in Charlottesville, Va. from June 7-9.
The festival is designed to bring together the international photography community, creating opportunities for attendees and artists to share images, ideas and inspiration. Last year's sold-out event drew more than 1,000 photographers, photo editors and luminaries to Charlottesville and an additional 7,000 fans followed the event online.
"The LOOK3 festival is a significant event for photographers and for those who share a passion for the still image," said Barak Ronen, senior vice president of media products at Corbis. "Corbis is committed to sharing the best photography across all genres and outlets, and as the exclusive media broadcast partner, our team onsite will capture events as they happen to create a global platform for creativity, inspiration and imaginative collaboration."
The Festival features exhibits and on-stage appearances by three "INsight" photographers, including Alex Webb, Stanley Greene and Donna Ferrato, as well as exhibitions, outdoor projections, workshops and interviews over three days and nights. Historic downtown Charlottesville will be transformed into a living image gallery with photographs displayed environmentally in public areas, projected in storefront windows and on buildings, as well as a number of special exhibits in galleries.
"Corbis is a global leader in the visual community and shares our belief in the power of visual storytelling," said Andrew Owen, managing director of LOOK3. "Following the success of last year's partnership, we are excited to partner again with Corbis as our exclusive media broadcast sponsor. The goal of the partnership is to ensure that attendees and fans alike can experience the full breadth of work and opinions from LOOK3's presenting photographers."
The LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph will take place from June 7-9 in Charlottesville, Va. Daily roundups, artists & masters talks and interviews with key personalities will be shared via social media outlets and available on the Look3 Blog, the Look3 Facebook profile, the Corbis blog and the Corbis Contributor YouTube channel.
