Portfolio 12 - International Portfolio Reviews

Portfolio 12 – International Portfolio Reviews

Presenting a unique opportunity for emerging artists worldwide to showcase their new photographic projects and meet with international professionals, PhotoIreland Festival’s international portfolio review weekend takes place from 13-15 July 2012 at Moxie Studios in Dublin city. While the reviews are private one-on-one consultations, the general public is invited to meet and engage with the participants in an informal way. All the works will be showcased in a projection at the opening event.

This year, the 45 participants come from over 20 countries, such as Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Russia, United States, the Netherlands, Portugal, the Philippines, Finland, Lithuania, Greece, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and, of course, Ireland. The reviewer list includes curators, gallery owners, festival directors, publishers and other international photography professionals.

We are very thankful to the Goethe-Institut Irland and the Austrian Embassy for their support, and to all involved for their dedication to make this event a success.
