Portfolio Reviews F.A.Q.

Portfolio Reviews are sold in blocks of 5 and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis based on your date of registration. After registering for your reviews, you will be contacted to rank your reviewers in order of preference to ensure that each participant is scheduled with whom they are most interested in seeing.  Reviewer preferences are due by August 1st.

We will update this page with additional FAQ for online reviews – details coming soon!

What happens after I register?

You will be contacted by a Filter Photo representative within 24-48 hours after you register for your reviews. You will be asked to submit your reviewer preferences in order from 1-10, 1 being who you would like to see the most.  The date you register holds your place in line and priority is given to those who register early. Schedules will be released by late August / early September.  Everyone registered for portfolio reviews will be invited to participate in the online Portfolio Walk.

How many images are in a portfolio and what size should they be?

A typical portfolio is comprised of tightly edited images in a project or series of 15-20 images.

How should I best prepare for my review?

The best way to have the most success with your reviews is to practice and research. Be sure you are meeting with a reviewer who is interested in your work. A good way to ensure this is to read his or her bio, found on our reviewers’ page, and research what type of work they generally exhibit or publish. By practicing your presentation beforehand you can make the most of your 20-minute review. Be sure to allow enough time for the reviewer to critique and give advice.
