September 23rd: Registration Opens for the Photolucida Portfolio Reviews

Photolucida Portfolio Reviews

“Registration will open Tuesday, September 23, 2014 (noon PST) and remain open for 48 hours.

The in-person Portfolio Reviews are the heart of the Photolucida 2015 festival, held during Portland Photo Month. Gallery owners, curators, agency art buyers, collectors and publishers representing small, mid-sized, and major venues from all over the US and abroad gather in Portland to review work. Photographers at the mid-career level register for one-on-one meetings with the reviewers of their choice. Each review session lasts for 20 minutes. The number of participants is limited to assure that everyone receives four or five reviews per day for four days. It’s a great way to network, both with reviewers and peers. Numerous photographers have walked away with opportunities to exhibit, publish, and sell their work after attending the Portfolio Reviews.

In addition to the primary Reviews appointments, Photolucida provides an informal meeting room with “roving” reviewers who look at work and give feedback and potential opportunities. Additional programming also includes “lunchtime chats” (daily talks from luminaries in the photography world) as well as a keynote lecture. Abelardo Morell, Todd Hido and Alec Soth have been keynote speakers in past years. A Portfolio Walk at the Portland Art Museum is organized for participants and is always embraced enthusiastically by the Portland public.

The next Portfolio Reviews event will take place April 23 – 26 2015.”

“The aim of Critical Mass, and all Photolucida programming, is to provide participants with career-building opportunities and to promote the best emerging and mid-career artists working today.

Critical Mass is a program about exposure and community. The idea is simple—photographers (from anywhere) submit a 10-image portfolio. This work is then pre-screened by a committee of approximately 25 jurors. From those votes, 200 finalists are determined. The 200 finalists then pay an additional submission fee and their work goes on to a jury of over 200 of the world’s best photography professionals who have agreed to view and vote on the finalists’ work. See the list of jurors!

Awards
Although the primary intent of Critical Mass is exposure (which is a benefit to all who enter), we are pleased to also offer awards each year. The awards for Critical Mass 2014 are:

Monograph Award – One photographer will be chosen for Photolucida’s prestigious monograph award. A hardbound book of their work will be published, distributed internationally, and given to all jurors and entrants in this year’s Critical Mass.

Artist Residency Award – One photographer will be chosen for a four-week residency in 2015 at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation’s Captiva Island (Florida) estate.

Solo Show Award – One photographer will be chosen for an exhibition at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland during Portland Photo Month in April, 2015. The exhibition will be one of the highlights of Photolucida’s biennial Portfolio Reviews event.
