Kranj Foto Fest Portfolio Reviews 2023

We are pleased to announce the third edition of Kranj Foto Fest Portfolio Reviews. Photographers from all over the world are invited to present their work to international and Slovenian experts. The Portfolio Reviews will take place on August 25, 2023, in Kranj, Slovenia, during the opening week of Kranj Foto Fest. Curators, photographers, publishers, gallerists and festival organizers will discuss your work by giving you precious insights during individual meetings.

What are Portfolio Reviews?

The portfolio reviews are considered a great opportunity for photographers to gain insights of their own work and receive guidance from professionals from the industry during one-on-one private meetings. Reviewers can advise on how to publish and exhibit your work, as well as how to develop it further. It is also an opportunity for networking, as many reviewers use the Portfolio Review sessions to search for new professionals to participate in their projects.
