Call for Submissions: Third Annual New York Portfolio Review

Deadline: Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at 11:59 PM EST

“We know how hard it is to be a photographer today and that every break counts. That’s why we are again putting together 150 photographers and 75 of the most influential editors, curators, gallerists and book publishers for two days of private photo critiques on April 11 and 12.

And … wait for it … it’s free.

Applications are now open for the Third Annual New York Portfolio review, sponsored by the New York Times Lens blog and the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. This will be an opportunity for people in the photographic community to meet, trade ideas, help each other — and have fun.

Saturday, April 11 will be for all photographers 21 and older, each of whom will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 12 will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of four private critiques for each participant, as well as talks by Santiago Lyon, director of photography for The Associated Press, on building an editorial portfolio, and by the photographer Phil Toledano on the creative process, as well as a panel on working with galleries. You can find a list of this year’s reviewers at the bottom of this page.

We will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 60 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 apply this year. Photographers who attended two years ago can apply for this year’s review, but they must submit new work and expectations will be higher.

To enter, send us no more than 20 photos total, from one or two projects, using the form here. The files should be jpegs, 1200 pixels across and 72 D.P.I. The deadline is Feb. 11 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. We will inform those who are accepted by March 4, 2015.”
