We are excited to invite photographers to sign up for the Uganda Press Photo Award 2021 Portfolio Review. This is your chance to talk to industry professionals and get fresh eyes on projects you’re working on, seek advice on technique and content, and get insight into how to market yourself and your work.
To be eligible for this free portfolio review you must be from one of the 54 African countries and primarily working on this continent.
Some of this year's reviewers were also on the judging panel for this year’s competition so you can seek critical advice on entries you submitted to the award. However, beware! Not all of what you may hear will be flattering. You will receive unfiltered and unbiased feedback, and though it won’t all be easy to hear, it will certainly help you to see your photographic work from a new perspective.
The review will take place over 2 days on October 29th & 30th, 2021
It will be conducted via Zoom between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm EAT
Registration deadline: October 10th, 2021
• At least one coherent body of work – a maximum of 30 carefully selected images sequenced as you’d wish them to be seen.
• Ability to articulate your concept, vision, and photographic goals; it might be helpful to write it down.
• Each participant should also be prepared to introduce her/himself, briefly mentioning his or her background.
Each participant will have a maximum appointments of their choice. An individual review session will be 25 min long.
Please read who the reviewers are (their bios are below) and think about your reasons for seeing each person- the keywords assigned to them should help you. The meeting should be as beneficial to you as possible, so for example, if you’re interested in photojournalism, you should probably see Yasuyoshi Chiba.
Places are limited, so once a booking is made it cannot be changed. Register using the link below, choosing up to 3 sessions with 3 different professionals that you’d like to see at a time that is convenient to you. We're keeping these sessions free to give more opportunity to photographers on the continent to take part, so please be very sure about your choice when selecting a slot. Should you be unable to take on your chosen slot, please let us know ahead of time so we can free it up. You will receive an email confirming the times and slots for each of your reviews as well as further instructions on how to create your portfolio online using the Visura Platform.
