Own-it, the Association of Illustrators and the Association of Photographers have invited a panel of practitioners and industry experts to share their experiences of self-promotion on the internet and how you can stand out from the crowd. They will give practical tips on selecting websites that work for you, what to consider when creating your own website and how to keep control of your copyright in a digital environment. And last but not least, we would like to discuss with you ways of working which sets professionals apart from the crowd.
There will also be a legal expert on hand for all questions legal that may arise during our discussion.

Speakers include:
Stuart Briers, Illustrator and AOI Web Manager

Stuart Briers has worked as a freelance illustrator for over 20 years. He has created imagery for a diverse range of editorial, publishing and advertising clients across the UK and USA.
In the late 90s, the advent of new technology led him to explore the best ways of promoting his work online. The creation of his own website led to web development work for others including the Association of Illustrators with whom he has had a long involvement. In 2003, he developed AOI Portfolios, which were launched as a user-friendly way to promote illustrators to the creative industries. http://www.stuartbriers.com http://www.aoiportfolios.com
