How can we continue to converse ideas across borders to keep the international artistic dialogue dynamic?

#SIPF2020’s Asia Meet: Portfolio Review is an online programme that serves as a springboard for collaboration and conversation between aspiring photographers and professionals in the industry. Aiming to connect photographers and professionals all around the world beyond borders, we have invited a wide selection of portfolio reviewers ranging from editors to curators to festival directors from over 15 countries to a centralized online discourse. As an online programme, the review sessions are open for registration internationally.

Participants will meet the reviewers of their choice for a one-on-one online consultation (25 minutes per session) where reviewers will provide advice and guidance on their portfolios and/or careers in the industry.

The reviewers have highlighted the portfolios that they like best. The festival hopes to share these highlights with the public with the purpose of continuing to connect photographers with more professionals.

17 selected photographers:
