What you need to do…
Consider in advance what results are you are seeking from your portfolio review. Are you asking advice or guidance/information, or are you looking to sell prints? Are you seeking representation by a gallery?

Do you wish to place an exhibition of a completed body of work at a festival or with a museum or institution? Are you hoping to secure an assignment or a publishing contract? Be clear about what you want, research the professional biographies of the reviewers towards making the most of your time towards your desired goals.

Prepare & Practice
Keep your presentation short and simple! Be mindful of the 20-minute limit with each Reviewer; you will want to save time within those 20 minutes to receive feedback from them. DO plan on speaking about your work, leave time for dialogue with the reviewers, too.

Remember Your Goals
Are you seeking advice regarding technique? Editing? Presentation? Or, Are you asking for help regarding gallery contacts? Publishers? Museum Curators? Let the Reviewer know at the outset what you hope to gain from this experience.

Be On Time!
If late for your scheduled review appointment, the time slot will not be extended. Report to the Workshop Reception 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment.

Ease of Handling & Presentation
You should prepare your selected portfolio images in high quality and high resolution to display well on your laptop. Please note that only laptop computers with an HDMI output can be used to present your portfolio of image. You should bring your own HDMI adaptor. To maintain a safe environment, reviewers will not handle a tablet or mobile phone.

Print Size
For Printed portfolios we suggest a selection of 20 images with at a minimum size of 20cm on long edge
