Portfolio Reviews

Filter Photo is pleased to announce our 10th annual Portfolio Reviews as part of the 2018 Filter Photo Festival.

Participants sign up for twenty-minute face-to-face reviews and receive candid advice about their images, as well as information on getting their work exhibited and published. We are thrilled to have so many of our attendees walk away with connections that have led to exhibitions, publications, and the indispensable opportunity to network with their peers.  Read more about preparing for reviews on our FAQ page.

All Filter Photo Festival attendees receiving blocks of portfolio reviews are encouraged to sign up for our annual Portfolio Walk, where Festival VIPs and the general public can view portfolios and everyone is invited to vote for their favorite portfolio for the 2018 Festival People’s Choice Award.  Due to space limitations only the first 100 registered artists that rsvp will be granted table space.
