FORMAT International Photography Festival Portfolio Reviews 2017 © Alina Pankova

The FORMAT Portfolio Review has got to be the biggest and best of its kind in the UK, if not Europe. Not only can you book appointments with experts from all over the world, after the portfolio reviews you can showcase your work in the ‘Portfolio Walk’ and have the opportunity to get your work seen by other attendees and reviewers.

It’s a brilliant day; intense, full-on, enlightening and fun. There are multiple awards from different organisations (including Shutter Hub) and it’s an incredible opportunity to hang out with people who are truly passionate about photography.

Check out the current list of reviewers below. You can find out more about the Portfolio Review, and book, here. See you there!
