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 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.”
