Who is an acceptable reference?
A reference must be a reputed professional in the fields of photography or art (museum, gallery, publishing, journalism, etc.). An established artist recognised in the international art scene can also be a suitable reference.
How many photographers can a reference recommend?
There is no limit to the number of recommendations that may come from one expert. We do, however, reserve the right to contact that individual to discuss their recommendation(s) during the selection process. If deemed necessary.
How should the reference’s letter and recommendation form arrive? Can it be sent directly to the museum?
No. All recommendation forms, and letters of reference must be transmitted with the application dossier on Picter. A reference may, however, scan the form and email it to the photographer to include in the application.
