UPDATE: Registration for Photolucida 2009 opened yesterday at 9 a.m. PST, and was sold out in one short hour.
Photolucida, the 4-day portfolio review event held every other spring in Portland, Oregon will be held April 23-26; open registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. PST on Wednesday morning, August 27th. Registration will accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
The event website states: “Photolucida does not jury it’s Portfolio Reviews, but we strive to keep the level of work of participants high. Participants should be mid-career photographers, with a recent history of exhibitions and/or publication. For a good reference of where your work should be professionally, please look at the work of artists in Critical Mass Top 50.”
If you register for this or any portfolio review event, remember that thoughtful research and preparation will aid you in beginning professional relationships; continuing that dialogue will be up to you. I encourage you to try to stay at the event hotel for the community such a gathering offers, and begin life-long friendships with your peers.
Portland is a great walking town, and the Benson Hotel is a short walk from the efficient MAX light rail system from the Portland Airport to downtown Portland, and you won’t need a rental car when at Photolucida.
As with any event that you must register for in advance, be sure to review the cancellation policy in the event that you are unable to participate.
I look forward to meeting many of you in Portland next April!
