Deadline to submit an initial slide/CD portfolio HAS BEEN EXTENDED: work must be received by February 19th, 2007. Then, during the weekend of March 10-11, 2007, 50 selected photographers will each have TEN twenty minute sessions with reviewers over the course of two days, and ample opportunity for further networking. Reviews will be held at the San Francisco Art Institute.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a full prospectus.
For those of you in the Western U.S., this is the only review event I am aware of in the near future (PhotoLucida in Portland, Oregon this April has been sold out for months, and won’t occur again until 2009; applications for Review Santa Fe 2007 also are closed.)
As my readers know, I encourage participation in portfolio review events; the opportunity to gain expert advice on your work, your craft and your career is invaluable, as is the dialogue with your peers. It should be your goal to be accepted to and attend juried portfolio review events. If accepted, prepare! And plan on following up with your reviewers. This is your opportunity to BEGIN relationships with industry professionals. The insights you will receive from meeting with 10 professionals at this event will move your work forward, without question.
