Promote your MA / MFA graduate work via the Source magazine website.
Watch the video and then book your place, more details below.
It's easy to put up your own website, but difficult to connect with an informed audience. Source Graduate Photography Online has been running successfully since 2007 and is designed to promote graduate photographic work from the UK and Ireland to our readership which includes picture editors, curators and those active in contemporary photography.
Each student's work is represented by 5 images, an artist's statement and contact details. All the work is arranged by University course and you can also search the site by genre. You can see what this year's BA Phase looks like here: Graduate Photography Online 2012.
Each year we also ask key people in the industry to introduce all the work by making a selection of the photographs they find most interesting. You can read who they are this year along with the complete details of what we provide below.
Source Photographic Review has an established profile both nationally and internationally through twenty years of publishing. The Source web site has over 10,000 pages of content making it a key online resource for contemporary photography.
What we provide:
A Showcase of Your Work:
5 images and a brief text introduction.
Your contact details and a link to your own website.
A listing with details of your Graduate exhibition venue, date and times.
The work is arranged by course group and remains on the Source site permanently - so it's accessible long after you graduate.
Searchable by genre to enable an audience to locate work.
A regular e-bulletin with photography opportunities after you graduate, providing a post-university lifeline to photography.
Value for money at £26 per student - which also includes a free one year subscription* to Source - 4 issues of the magazine normally costs £21.

How it works and what to do now:
Graduate Photography Online is open to any MA or MFA photography course in the UK or Ireland and any student can reserve a place for their year group.
Select a lead student and get them to book your year group's place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org You must have at least 5 students initially and you can confirm the exact number in April. The lead student will be the contact person between your group and Source.
We will confirm the course's space is booked via email. In April we will contact the lead student with a reminder and login details for the online submission facility.
The Lead Student will be responsible for gathering and loading their year group's images and text onto our server and for making a single payment for the group online via their paypal account.
The lead student should let fellow students know what is needed from them and what the final deadline is. We suggest gathering all the material together a week in advance.
The lead student will then submit all the material - using Source's online submission facility - within the given dates.
The Lead Student will gather the following from each participating student:
Five images as digital files, 72 DPI and 600 pixels wide on the longest side. We cannot accept moving image files.
A 120 word statement about their work.
Personal email address.
Personal telephone number (optional).
Personal website address (optional).
A postal address with a full post code - this will be the address to which the free subscription to the magazine will be sent. The subscription will commence in July so the address must remain current for the year following. If the student is uncertain about where they will be residing during this period they may wish to provide the address of their parental home instead.
MA / MFA Courses: You will be able to submit from 20th August and the final deadline is 31st August 2012.
