How to get Commissioned!

With Jenny Rutter

Friday 24th November 2017

10am – 4pm

Ever wondered how artists get all those great jobs? Ever seen an advert in AN for a commission opportunity and think, 'I just don’t know where to start in applying for this’? Then this session is for you. A practical day exploring what makes a great commission proposal, how to respond to briefs and create compelling information that will give you the best chance of winning commissioned work. Using real life commissioned project examples and exploring the key do’s and don’ts, this day will help shape the way you apply for commissions in the future.
