This year’s Fotopub Festival will see emerging artists present their work to leading industry professionals.
The festival has announced its open call for The Fotopub Portfolio Review 2017.
Participants will have a chance to meet invited reviewers, curators and other professionals as well as the public.
Each artist will present their work for one day within the two-day portfolio review.
The artist with the most outstanding portfolio will be awarded the Portfolio Prize. Their reward is an exhibition in any form at the next festival.
A jury of all the invited reviewers will decide the winner.
However, there is not long to enter as the deadline for entries is Sunday, June 25.
The portfolio review is on August 4 and August 5.
It enables young, emerging artists to present their work to some of the leading industry professionals.
