This afternoon I spoke with Laura Wzorek Pressley at CENTER, and learned that there are a few spaces available for those photographers wishing to have their work reviewed by industry professionals at Review LA January 14-16 at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Santa Monica, California.
And as an added benefit for participants, the art fair “Photo LA” is returning to its former location the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, occurring across the street from Review LA on the same weekend. This way, photographers can participate in a portfolio review event AND attend an art fair on the same trip. And this convenience also makes it easy for those attending and exhibiting at the fair to consider attending the open portfolio walk on Friday evening January 15th which will showcase the work of Review LA participants (held in the Doubletree’s ballroom). Economy in every way!
CENTER, which also organizes Review Santa Fe (an annual juried portfolio review event), offers participants the opportunity to rank the reviewers in order of preference during an on-line lottery. When this period of time concludes, you will know exactly which reviewers you will be meeting with.
From Laura: “The lottery opens this Monday, December 21st, and closes on Tuesday, December 29th. (Note – the lottery and the reviews are not based on a first-come, first-serve basis. It makes no difference if participants enter their reviewer preferences on Monday, or a minute before the lottery closes on the 29th). On Wednesday, December 30th we run the data as submitted, and the resulting schedules will be available for the participants in order to prepare for their reviews.”
If any spaces are available after that date, the photographers must choose the review spaces that remain.”

I look forward to seeing many of you there!
