SIPF Portfolio Review is a springboard for works to be picked up by local and international reviewers. This year, we have a wide selection of portfolio reviewers ranging from editors to curators to festival directors. You will get to present your works to these professionals and receive useful advice and guidance on your works and careers.
In this 6th edition, a participant will be awarded the Best Portfolio Review Prize which gives him/her the opportunity to hold a solo exhibition in the next edition of SIPF in 2020.
Each participant can meet 7 reviewers of their choice, in a one-to-one individual 20-minute session. Participants should bring their actual printed portfolio for review. Presentation of digital files on a laptop is possible but not encouraged.
About the Reviewer
Prior to establishing an independent press in China, Yanyou was the editor of The Outlook Magazine. His interest in photography and writing naturally led to him to establish Jiazazhi Press, a photo institution focused on presenting photographic works in book form.
Since then, Yanyou has made 21 books, and among them is Bees and Bearable nominated as one of the best photobooks in 2016. Most recently, Jiazazhi Press has created a photobook library in Ningbo, China, and a webzine featuring works of emerging photographers.
Works with the best balance of public and personal experience
