The International Meeting Place Portfolio Review for Artists is the largest, longest-running, and most international program of its kind in the United States. Throughout its history, beginning with the first iteration in 1986, the Meeting Place has brought together thousands of photographic artists and photography professionals from around the world to one common location. The multi-day event is truly a “meeting place,” a unique, photography-centered environment where participants have the opportunity to network, collaborate, share ideas, and establish life-long connections.
Each participating photographer is guaranteed four one-on-one portfolio reviews per day, each lasting 20 minutes. Whether you are looking for practical results for a completed body of work or feedback on work in progress, the Meeting Place creates opportunities to present your portfolio to a wide range of photography decision-makers who have valuable and wide-ranging insights that will help you push the development, focus, and presentation of your work. In many cases, reviewers can assist with career development in tangible ways, through exhibitions, acquisition of work, gallery representation, artist residencies, or the publication of work online, in a magazine, or in a book.
The Meeting Place runs from September 25 - October 8, 2022, and is divided among three four-day sessions. Please visit the FotoFest website to view the current lists of confirmed reviewers, and additional details about the Meeting Place 2022 Portfolio Review. Registration for the Meeting Place is open to all lens and image-based artists and photographers. Space is limited!
