We understand the high cost associated with a photographic degree and wish to help. We have created a special initiative for Connect 2012 — Several Festival sponsors have graciously offered to “adopt” an emerging photographer by contributing a $500 rebate to help defray some of the costs for a select group of talented emerging photographers to attend the Palm Springs Photo Festival, April 1 – 6, 2012.
This program is open to current full-time students and recent graduates (within 12 months) of an Undergraduate or Masters program at an accredited institution in the United States. Applicants selected to receive scholarship must register and participate in a Connect 2012 three-day Workshop in order to redeem scholarship check. Scholarship recipients will be recognized and presented with their scholarship check during one of the four Evening Presentations during the Festival.
If you have not already done so, please click here to familiarize yourself with the various Workshops available at Connect 2012 (opens in new window).
In addition, attendees will be able to use the Festival’s PSPF Attendee Facebook Page to communicate directly with possible room share candidates.” Facebook Group, as a tool to facilitate the sharing of hotel expenses with other attendees at the Hyatt Regency Suites (our Attendee Headquarters), Palm Mountain Resort, just across the street from the Hyatt or the Comfort Inn, just under a mile from the festival. For complete hotel and travel information, see Travel / Hotels.
Please complete the following form and submit to be considered by our selection panel for this great opportunity.
