The weekend will be a great opportunity for emerging and established photographers to meet with curators, gallerists, educators, and other image professionals in the busy New England photography world and beyond. The reviews are hosted in partnership with The Griffin Museum of Photography and the Photographic Resource Center.

The portfolio reviews will serve individuals who are just embarking on their careers and those who have experience and are hoping to reach new audiences. In the traditional format, each review will be 25 minutes long (with 5 minutes between reviews) with one reviewer.

Regarding reviewer selection: We will send out a survey for people to rank their top 10 reviewers and we will then match everyone as best we can.
