September 13 in NYC: Portfolio Reviews from EN FOCO

I received this from Miriam Romais, Executive Director of EN FOCO, announcing their NYC Reviews; you must be a current member to participate. Bios for all Reviewers are on the event’s website entry. Note that each registrant is guaranteed three sessions; first to register get first pick of Reviewers with whom to meet. If you’ve not attended a review event before, attending this one-day event would be great prep for the longer, larger review events:

“En Foco’s Portfolio Review Sessions, offers one-on-one reviews with NY and CA curators and editors on the same day, in a supportive, culturally diverse and affordable environment. Reviewers can advise about opportunities and/or provide guidance on career development. Each review session lasts for 20 minutes (with 5 min in between each); photographers are guaranteed a minimum of three reviews and receive a ‘gift bag.’ Upon registration, participants also receive an article written by Mary Virginia Swanson on how to best prepare themselves & their portfolio, for the Review.

First Registered = First Choice of Reviewers,
so don’t procrastinate!!
