We are excited to invite photographers to sign up for the 2023 Uganda Press Photo Award 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 competitions 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 on October 27th & 28th, 2023
It will be conducted via Zoom between 9:30 am and 5:30 pm EAT
Registration deadline: October 2nd, 2023
• 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 is guaranteed at least 2 appointments of their choice. Each review session will be 25 min long.
Please read about the reviewers (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 Luis Tato.
Register using the link below, choosing up to 5 reviewers you’d most like to see or are most relevant to you from your top. We're keeping these sessions free to give an opportunity to more photographers on the continent to take part. Slots are limited and will be allotted on a first-come first served basis. We’ll reach out to you with your schedule ahead of the review via email confirming the reviewers and times slots allotted to you as well as further instructions on how to create your portfolio online using the Visura Platform.
