Open Call For A Photography Portfolio Review

What is a portfolio review?

The portfolio review is a platform to present your work of photography to a group of well-known photographers, curators and photo journalists. In one-to-one sessions with the experts you will have the chance to discuss your work and get constructive feedback on artistic and presentational issues.

The program: You will have individual review sessions with all of the five experts. Each session will be 10-15 minutes long. There will also be activities for the whole group of participants: five input sessions on different topics by the experts, and a public panel discussion. On the last day we will discuss future activities of the Goethe-Institut Addis Ababa in the area of photography.

Date and Venue: 1-3 June 2016, Goethe-Institut Addis Ababa
