Picademy #8 Application: no acknowledgement?

Fri Jan 30, 2015 3:58 pm

Hi All,

I am very keen to attend Picademy #8 and applied at the beginning of the week.

When I applied I did not get any automated acknowledgement.

Is this normal? Not sure if I should bother the foundation with an email as I know they get huge amounts of email as it is.

I don't know whether they have received my online application or not.

Best wishes

We do not send out acknowledgement messages for Picademy applications. We have only just recently closed the Feb form and are unlikely to look at April applications until end of feb/early march.

There will not be a picademy in March.

Thanks.

I have applied for the February Picademy event. This is the first I've heard that it has been cancelled. Should I now apply for the next event or have applications carried over?

It hasn't been cancelled. If you've not received an email to attend unfortunately your application was not successful, sorry.
