PhotoMATCH 2019: November 23-24
Photolux in collaboration with Spazio Fotografia San Zenone present: PhotoMATCH, the new portfolio review format created by FotoFestiwal, Lodz.
PhotoMATCH is a two-day meeting and exchange time designed for both photographers and reviewers.
During short presentations the reviewers and the photographers talk about their work and show their most interesting projects. All the reviewers and photographers participate in the presentations. Photographer’s presentation is designed for 4 minutes and 20 slides and reviewer’s presentation for 2 minutes and 10 slides.
Photographers choose two reviewers and reviewers choose two photographers for individual meetings (20 minutes).
PHOTOGRAPHERS MEET REVIEWERS
In the first round, reviewers receive those photographers who have booked a meeting with experts of their choice.
REVIEWERS MEET PHOTOGRAPHERS
In the second round, photographers take their spots and receive those reviewers who have registered for a meeting with artist of their choice.
ALL MEET ALL
An open time and space for additional and informal meetings. If one did not succeed to register for a regular meeting with someone of the strong interest, there is still a chance to have a short discussion at that moment. It is also time for reviewers to approach another reviewers and photographers to speak with other photographers.
We have also emphasised a social part of the event. We arranged a coffee corner for all participants to facilitate their discussions, exchange of thoughts and ideas, network building. A common meal for both experts and artists will be provided on day one.
The authors of the 5 best portfolio, selected by the reviewers, will win:
- An artist residency in Corse, in cooperation with the Centre Méditerranéen de la Photographie , Bastia.
- An artist residency among the ERA. European Residence Award, in cooperation with Photaumnales (Beauvais, Francia) and Kaunas Photo(Lituania).
