Painting a thousand words: effective use of imagery
Thu 3 November 2016, 11:50 – 12:40 GMT
For our highly visual species, imagery is a massively powerful tool for communication and the skills of talented photographers, artists and filmmakers are invaluable to many campaigns. Whilst a picture paints a thousand words, we may not all pick up on the same story as our perspectives profoundly influence what we interpret.
Join leading lights from Wildscreen’s Exchange programme to explore the most effective ways to communicate through images, whilst building more positive relationships with those who supply them.
Gain insights into the way different people respond to imagery
Gain practical hints and tips for selecting the right imagery to support your campaigns and activities
Develop best practice skills for working with photographers and filmmakers
