Photographers & Photojournalists!

Fotovision SlideSlam: Next Slideslam will be November 19th

Every Third Thursday of the Month 7-9pm

SlideSlam is a FREE monthly event providing aspiring and professional photographers the chance to present their work. SlideSlam is open to all Fotovision members as well as the general public. We aim to be an interactive community so we welcome your ideas on presenters, format, potential sponsors, and future themes!

Starter food and drinks are provided, but we encourage you to bring something potluck-style. No alcohol for any students under 21.

Projects selected for the SlideSlam will be reviewed by Scott McKiernan, founder of ZUMA Press photo agency, for potential publication and international media distribution. A free 11x14 printing at Pictopia's professional photo lab will also be raffled off each month.
