International Portfolio Review 2018
Supported by FUJIFILM
In 2018, we welcome you to the fourth edition of our International Portfolio Review.
Our portfolio review is a place where professionals and photographers meet. Every spring during KYOTOGRAPHIE, leading figures in the field of photography including curators, gallerists, festival directors, publishers gather.
During the third edition of the review KYOTOGRAPHIE welcomed 21 reviewers from 8 countries, and 77 participating photographers from 7 countries gathered to meet for the review. Some of the photographers have received excellent opportunities from the event, in the form of exhibitions in Europe, Korea, and China. The sale of photobooks in France, and winning a world-class photo award.
Reviews are 20 minutes long with a 10-minute break in between. After the internal selection, every effort will be made during the allocation process to meet your preferences. In principle, we plan to allocate you at least one of the preferred reviewers. However, we do not guarantee that you will have reviewers of your preferences due to the limited number of sessions.
CROSSING – Portfolio Review & KG+ Party
Attending the portfolio review grants you access to the “CROSSING – Portfolio Review & KG+ Party”. At this party, people in the various fields will gather including photographers, reviewers, KYOTOGRAPHIE artists, KG+ artists, KYOTOGRAPHIE organizers and so on. Participants will have another opportunity to connect with people in the industry. In addition, we will hold “Portfolio Walk” where you can present your photos to professionals directly.
In 2018, we offer the “FUJIFILM AWARD”. One winner among the finalists, selected by reviewers will receive the prize from FUJIFILM.
Our portfolio review is all-inclusive, open to all ages, nationalities and career level. We look forward to your submission!
