The 10th, jubilee edition of the Review also features a competition with the Griffin Art Space Prize - Lubicz 2015 for the artist with the best portfolio! The prize is production of two copies of a folder featuring the photographer’s works, one of which will be purchased for the Griffin Art Space collection.
The Portfolio Review is a unique opportunity to get advice and tips from experts from Poland and abroad, whose experience and opinions have in previous editions of the event often resulted in the further photographic development of the participants. As well as the opportunity to take part in the competition, Review participants will also be able to present their works to a wider audience during the open part of the event, accompanied by good music and over a glass of wine.
The 10th Portfolio Review takes place on May 23 at 11 am–5.30 pm at Centrum Biurowe Lubicz, at ul. Lubicz 23 in Krakow.
