Palm Springs Photo Festival Portfolio Review at PhotoPlus
NOTE: For those interested in buying a copy of our Portfolio Review Sourcebook, Here is the link:
Over 1000 Portfolio Reviews will be offered during the week! A list of the most sought-after industry professionals of any event in the country will be posted online and every morning at the Portfolio Review area at the Hyatt, updated hourly. You may show your work as prints or on your computer. Please limit your presentation to not more than 20 images in order to allow the person you’re meeting with to properly respond to your work.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
CLICK HERE to see the list of all available reviews! Once on this page, you may register directly and reserve your reviews. If you’re already registered for portfolio reviews, you may reserve your reviews from this screen.
You may register for reviews in blocks of 5. Additional series of five reviews or more may be purchased. Discounts apply to 10 or more reviews. Once at the festival, you should be present in our waiting area at least 15 minutes before your review. We reserve the option to allow others to take the review if you’re not there when the review is scheduled to begin.
You may select to take your reviews at any time on any day (you can take them all on one day, spread them out over five days, etc). Obviously, your chances to see all of your requested reviewers will be greater if you’re registered for multiple days.
DEADLINES TO REMEMBER:
A place to present work is available to the first 80 attendees to sign up for Portfolio Reviews at our OPEN PORTFOLIO REVIEW(r) on Sunday April 1 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Palm Springs. Fee to attendees pre-registered in the Portfolio Program is $47.50. For those not registered for Portfolio Reviews, an attendee is still able to present work at the Open Portfolio Review with the payment of a $95 fee (subject to availability).
Announcing the 2nd Annual PSPF Portfolio Review Prize: Portfolio Reviewers will collectively vote on the work they see during the festival and Blurb will endow the prize with $500 towards a Blurb book or books to the winner. The winner will make a special Blurb book that will be promoted on the Blurb Site. Blurb also announced that they will send a film crew to create a 3-minute documentary on the photographer (US residents only) that will be posted on the Blurb website and which the photographer can post on theirs. In addition, the winner receives additional prizes from our sponsors Sony, Western Digital and others.
Gifts shipped free to US Residents only
Prices are $250 for 5 reviews. A 10% discount is applied to 10 or more reviews.
Our recommendation is to spend as many days at the festival as possible to have the widest range of reviewers possible.
