Fotofestiwal has been developing a new formula of portfolio reviews for the past 4 years under the name PHOTO-MATCH, which gives all the participants a possibility to introduce themselves and present their work to all of the experts and artists in the review. Last years finalist Sebastian Collet has joined the City Program during Fotofestiwal this year.
Submissions are open until the 26th of May. We can’t wait to see your work! You can find more information about how to apply here.
The review will take place on the 11-12th of June. During the first day both artists and experts will present themselves and their practice, based on which they will then be chosen for meetings on the following day. Day two is simply meetings, discussions, brain storms and, hopefully, the very beginnings of future collaborations. The review’s winner will be awarded an opportunity of organising their own exhibition in the future edition of Fotofestiwal.
