24 October 2020, 10.30 - 20.30 LDN

This year, Photoworks Festival will run an intimate session of portfolio reviews using the Photo Match format.

This model breathes new life into the traditional formula of portfolio reviews by attempting to better match artists with reviewers. We have invited international curators and festival directors to review, giving artists an opportunity to share their work with professionals from around the world.

Our list of international reviewers include museum curators and festival directors from some of the most innovative platforms around the globe: 

  • Monica Allende, Landskrona Foto, Landskrona
  • Sarah Allen, Tate, London
  • Julia Bunnemann, Photoworks, Brighton
  • Antonio Cataldo, Fotogalleriet, Oslo
  • Sebah Chaudhry, Format, Derby
  • Daniel de Luigi, Giovane Fotografia Italiana, Reggio Emilia
  • Clara de Tezanos, La Fototeca, Guatemala City
  • Aldeide Delgado, Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA), Miami
  • Yumi Goto, curator and educator, Tokyo
  • Sunyoung Kim, The Museum of Photography, Seoul (MoPS), Seoul
  • Kim Knoppers, FOAM, Amsterdam

How does Photo March work?

Viewing presentations 19 – 22 October

You submit a digital portfolio of up to ten images from the project you would like to present during your reviews. We then share your portfolio with the reviewers who will then look through the portfolios online.

Matching 23 October

Each artist tells us which reviewers they would like to see and each reviewer tells us which artist they would like to see. We then match the photographers and reviewers based on their preferences.

Online meetings 24 October 10.30 – 20.30

This day is devoted to the 1:1 portfolio review meetings. Each artist will have 3 x 25 minute reviews and Photoworks will send you your schedule on Friday 23 October once the ‘matching’ process has been complete. As the reviewers are based in timezones around the world the meetings will take place between 10.30am London time and 20.30pm London time.
