Participants sign up for twenty-minute face-to-face reviews and receive candid feedback about their images, as well as information on getting their work exhibited and published. We are thrilled to have so many of our attendees walk away with connections that have led to exhibitions, publications, and the indispensable opportunity to network with their peers. 

Health and safety during the 2021 Portfolio Reviews will be our top priority.  Reviews will be in person at the 21C Museum Hotel in downtown Chicago.  Masks and social distancing will be in place per city and state guidelines in September and we will also be reducing the number of people in the portfolio review room for each review session.  Additionally, tables will be cleaned between each review session.

2021 reviewers announced soon!
