Raw Talent at the Salt Building

One month from now the venerable Salt Building in The Village on False Creek will play host to the 4th annual Raw Talent exhibit featuring 720 photos of Vancouver taken by 60 photographers over 12 hours on the 18th of August. To make this happen we need your help and the help of local and international businesses. We are calling for sponsors and donors to help fund this massive, free, public photo exhibit so we can take advantage of all the Salt Building has to offer and make Raw Talent 2012 a celebration of photography in Vancouver every Vancouverite can attend.

Corporate sponsors are encouraged to contact us through the sponsorship form. Donors and supporters can back us via our crowdfunding initiative. All funds raised will go towards the staging of the event, and the closer we get to our lofty goal of $10,000 the better the event will get. In return for your support you get plenty of exposure to the expected 800 – 1000 attendees as well as some cool perks and plenty of good karma. Who can ask for more?

Raw Talent is the culmination of the 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon, a 12 hour test of creativity, photographic skill, and endurance. Being a film-based contest this will be the first time the photographers and the public get to see the photos from the event. The one-night-only event has seen a yearly crowd of about 400 people, and for 2012 we expect to double these numbers thanks to our larger venue and more central location.

With your support we will make a photo exhibit worthy of the most prestigious art gallery, and it will be free for anyone and everyone to attend.
