Sponsorship Opportunities

Our lineup of influential keynote speakers and our location in the nation’s capital – one of the top destinations for visitors in the U.S. — will make Focus on the Story 2019 one of the premier photography gatherings of the year.

While we expect up to 350 paid registrants to participate in Focus on the Story’s May 28 – June 2 workshops, talks and events, that will only be a slice of what is happening. Focus on the Story 2019 kicks off Click DC, a celebration of photography in the nation’s capital that will last the entire month of June. We are promoting a calendar full of exhibits, photo walks and talks organized by DC’s leading photography organizations, galleries and clubs.

That means by supporting Focus on the Story 2019 you will not only reach the highly-engaged professional photographers and enthusiasts who come for FOTS but you’ll have a chance to amplify your reach to thousands of photography lovers during June’s “Click DC” celebration of photography.

We could not put this festival on without the support of our sponsors. That’s why it is extremely important to us that you get the best possible return on your investment.  We’ll work with you to build the perfect sponsorship package that meets all your needs. Want to do something that isn’t listed on this page? Talk to us and we’ll do our best to work it out. To inquire about sponsorship opportunities, contact joe@focusonthestory.org.
