Participants sign up for twenty-minute face-to-face virtual 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.  Read more about preparing for reviews on our FAQ page.
