Gallery View: A Virtual Portfolio Review
The Annenberg Space for Photography has once again partnered with our friends at Photoville to create Gallery View: A Virtual Photography Portfolio Review! The program pairs professional and emerging photographers with top photo editors, curators, and world-renowned photographers for a special one-on-one review.
Over the course of five weeks, 100 photographers will be selected to present their portfolio of work to two established professionals in the field. Photographers will be given the unique opportunity to exchange ideas about their process, body of work, and careers with the reviewers virtually in a one-on-one setting.
The Photo Space and Photoville will jointly determine the photographers and the expert reviewers, and will make the pairings based on shared interests and subject matter. Categories for submission include editorial, fashion, music, journalism, landscape, portraiture, and conceptual.
Once selections are made, the program will be held virtually every Friday on Zoom. The program will also host a special Student Portfolio Review Day, where students and recent graduates from higher education institutions can learn from the most established photographers and professionals in the field and discuss opportunities for growth.
Professional entries must be received by 11:59pm PDT on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. EXTENDED: Student entries must be received by 11:59pm PDT on Monday, May 25, 2020. Submission is free; once selected, photographers will be required to pay a $25 fee to secure their place. Student photographers’ fee will be waived.
The Photo Space and Photoville hope that this program will cultivate a much-needed sense of community during this challenging time, while building on the professional skills of emerging photographers.
