As in 2013, the goal of the reviews will be to offer talented photographers from around the world a forum to discuss their work with a wide range of photography experts - including Hotshoe's Commissioning Editor Gregory Barker - producing an active dialog between the aspiring artists and the editors, photographers, publishers and curators from various prestigious institutions.
By presenting their portfolios to a professional photo-jury the participants will have the chance to undergo constructive criticism, gain public attention and be advised for their future careers.
The deadline for the submissions is 16th December 2013. Out of all submissions 20-25 photographers will be selected to present their work on 1st February 2014 at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf. The best portfolios will be awarded with prizes sponsored by ARTE Creative, Grieger and Salon.io
The Portfolio Review is a public event and the images will be screened with a projector. A portfolio of the Portfolio Review 2014 comprising the works of the participating photographers will be available at the day of the event.
