LANDSKRONA PORTFOLIO REVIEW
Welcome to Landskrona Portfolio Review, held for the fourth time in the framework of our Festival. As in previous years, we invite photographers and lens-based artists to show their work to experts from around the globe, in order to receive useful feedback and opportunities for exhibitions and publications. The reviews will be accompanied by lectures, workshops, and the possibility for informal meetings with your peers.
Furthermore, the winner of the Best Portfolio Award will be invited to take part in the official exhibition programme during Landskrona Foto Festival 2018. Former winners include Johan Österholm, Johan Willner and Kacper Kowalski.
This year we have a special prize! – Landskrona Foto and Artproof Portfolio of the Year Award – the portfolio that reviewers voted as the year’s most interesting and promising. The prize consists of getting an exhibition produced by Artproof up to a value of 5,000 euros and to exhibit in the coming years Landskrona Foto Festival.
