Portfolio Reviews

“Portfolio reviews are a wonderful way to build community and source new talent.” Michael Itkoff, USA

There are only a few places left on this year’s portfolio reviews so make sure you book your review here.

The FORMAT team have invited over 70 reviewers from 25 countries, representing all sections of the photographic industry with each reviewer bringing their own speciality.

“I have met some of the most interesting photographers at Format portfolio reviews, many of whom I continue to have lasting connections and working relationships with.
Both local, national and international photographers convene, and the range and diversity of work is remarkable.” Zelda Cheatle, UK

This year FORMAT will be running the reviews online over two days Friday 19th – Saturday 20th March from 9.30am – 4.00pm with the Portfolio Review Awards being presented on the Saturday at 4.30pm.

“Connecting with professionals on a personal level is the first step in entering a network in which your work gets seen and discussed. Once you plant that first seed in people’s heads, ultimately, as you develop and keep that network updated on your progress, eventually your work could be picked up for publishing or exhibitions. Participating in portfolio reviews is essentially a first investment into creating a sustainable professional artistic practice.” Mirjam Kooiman, Netherlands
