An estimated 380 BILLION pictures were uploaded in 2012. In that same year, facebook users uploaded over 300 MILLION photos EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. The vast majority of these are only seen by a few people- shared mostly with the photographer's circle of friends and family. Some more might be seen by strangers with similar interests, who discover them via a hashtag, and fewer still make it into a print or online publication, get printed out and shown, or go viral online.
But who are the gatekeepers who decide which images make it to the party? Who separates the digital wheat from the proverbial chaff? In this panel discussion we will meet those curators of imagery, both off and on-line, who determine which images people see.
