Launched in 2012 by James Estrin, co-editor of The New York Times Lens blog, the New York Portfolio Review have drawn attention and had a notable success over the years, with many photographers being able to show their work to photo specialists and publish their work.
There are only a few days left to apply for the Fifth Annual New York Portfolio Review, sponsored by The New York Times Lens blog and the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Journalism. The deadline is February 12, 2017 at 11:59 pm US Eastern time. The event will again be gathering 150 photographers and 75 of the most influential editors, curators, gallerists and book publishers for two days of private photo critiques on April 29 and 30, 2017.
Saturday April 29 will be for all photographers 21 and older. Each participant will receive six private critiques. Sunday, April 30, will be solely for photographers 18 to 27 and will consist of at least four private critiques for each participant, as well as workshops on how to best present, promote and publish your photographs. The New York Times will screen all applicants and choose 100 participants for Saturday and 50 for Sunday. All kinds of photographic work — from fine art to photojournalism — are encouraged.
Please note: Photographers who attended last year’s review are not eligible to apply this year. Those who attended once in previous years can apply for this year’s review, but they must submit new work and expectations will be higher. Those who have already attended the review twice cannot apply this year.
Once photographers are selected, they will submit their top choices of reviewers they like to see their work. The New York Times will match participants with as many of those reviewers as possible.
