FOTOFEST OPENS REGISTRATION FOR 2008 “Meeting Place” Portfolio Reviews

FotoFest 2008 International “Meeting Place” Portfolio Reviews has opened registration, closing on JULY 9th. You are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

FotoFest begins processing Meeting Place registrations on July 9, 2007

On July 9, 2007, if FotoFest HAS NOT received more Meeting Place registrations than spaces available, registrations are processed in the order they are received in the FotoFest office.

On July 9, 2007, if FotoFest HAS received more Meeting Place registrations than spaces available, they will conduct a lottery for all Meeting Place applicants.

Meeting Place registrations received after July 9, 2007 are placed on the waiting list in the order they arrive in the FotoFest office.

Registration confirmation is sent after your check has cleared or your credit card charges have been processed and approved.

FotoFest is the only portfolio review event in the US that has a strong international group of Reviewers – a very economical way to gain responses on your work from diverse arts communities. It occurs March of every other even-numbered year; if you don’t get in this year, the next chance will be March 2010.

The 2008 “Meeting Place” runs March 7-20, and is organized as follows:

Session one: March 7/8/9/10
Education day #1 of 2: March 11
Session two: March 12/13/14/15
Education day #2 of 2: March 16
Session three: March 17/18/19/20

NOTE: The theme for the education days have not been announced but know that each day will be a unique program. Plan to attend both if possible!

Artists can register for 4 to 6 days of portfolio reviews; if you choose 6 days you will overlap one of the education days, and benefit from meeting Reviewers from two different sessions (Reviewers are asked to commit to one four-day session).

Fees are $765 for 4-day registration (one session) and $950 for 6-day registration (one and a half sessions).
