Dear DAM Guru Member,
I am writing to inform you that on 1st April 2020, ownership of DAM Guru Program (DGP) was transferred from Picturepark to Daydream. All the current arrangements, including guru matching services, job and event posting will remain exactly as they were before and there will be no material changes as a result of the transfer.
The current management of DAM Guru will also remain in-place with no changes. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will make best endeavour to answer them.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Picturepark for their valued support and having the vision to first establish it in 2013.
Director, DAM Guru Program
