The New York Portfolio Review, Part II
Deadline: Monday, February 10, 2014 at 11:59 pm EST

“Last April’s New York Portfolio Review was so successful that we decided to make it a regular event. So we are pleased to announce that applications are open for the second annual New York Portfolio Review, sponsored by the Lens Blog and the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. This year’s review will be held the weekend of April 5 and 6, 2014 in New York, and it will be an opportunity for people in the photographic community to meet, trade ideas and help each other.

Space is limited, but defying the laws of supply and demand, the review is still free. Call us outlaws or crazy, but that’s how we roll. Why? Because we think it is hard enough to be a photographer these days — that every break counts.

Saturday, April 5 will be for all photographers 21 and older, each of whom will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 6 will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of four private critiques for each participant, as well as workshops on photo editing, portfolio building and copyright and contracts.

We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 50 for Sunday. All kinds of photographic work — from fine art to photojournalism — are encouraged. Please note: photographers who attended last year’s review will not be eligible to attend this year.

Submission Guidelines

  • Submit no more than 20 photos total, from one or two projects.
  • Files should be jpegs, 1200 pixels across and 72 d.p.i.
  • Submit files via the form here.

We will look at every submission, pick 150 photographers and notify you by March 6. Once you have been accepted, you will choose from a list of reviewers you would like to meet, and we will do our algorithmic best to make everyone happy. Honest.”
