The Athens Photo Festival’s Portfolio Reviews offer an opportunity for emerging artists and photographers to meet and network with internationally acclaimed experts.
A total of 20 curators, editors, agency and festival directors and influential experts from different countries are brought together during the Athens Photo Festival to provide an opportunity for photographers and artists to receive advice on their work.
This year’s portfolio review programme will take place on Monday and Tuesday 13-14 June 2016 at the Benaki Museum (Pireos St. Annexe) in Athens. Participants can register for either 4, 6 or 8 one-on-one reviews. Each review session lasts for 20 minutes. Places are limited, so early application is highly encouraged.
In addition to providing professional advice, the reviewers will award the “Best Portfolio” and the winner will have the chance to exhibit at the Athens Photo Festival 2017 edition.
