Exciting update this year: All participants will have the same chance at their first choices of reviewers as long as online registration is completed by the deadline! You DO NOT have to register on the first day in order to get your first choices. We are using a different software system this year.
In addition, current students at area colleges will have the opportunity to sign up for open review slots at a discounted price (after initial registration)!
The New England Portfolio Reviews is an opportunity for emerging and established photographers to meet with curators, teachers, gallerists, and other image professionals. The Reviews will serve both individuals who are just embarking on their careers and those who have several years of experience and are hoping to reach new audiences by initiating connections with leading figures in the busy New England photography world.

In the next month, go out and shoot anything that strikes your fancy within your personal interpretation of the quote below. There is no right or wrong interpretation, but be prepared to discuss your images within the context of the quote. We can't wait to see what you come up with!
"In photography, the smallest thing can be a great
subject. The little human detail can become a leitmotiv."
-- Henri Cartier-Bresson
Please join us for an informal, mix-and-mingle style Night at the PRC featuring a gallery pin-up of small prints created as a result of the themed "assignment" issued below. If you wish to participate in the gallery pin-up party by showing your prints, you must register ahead of time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Each assignment participant is asked to bring a maximum of 5 prints no larger than 11 x 14 inches to pin up on the gallery walls for the Night. The prints do NOT need to be high quality exhibition or portfolio prints. Curious onlookers and photo enthusiasts are encouraged to attend. Please bring refreshments to share and an open mind!

Reception: Thursday, May 23, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Come see the world through the creative eyes of five middle school children and two Take 5 alums. Given cameras for a year and under the guidance of professional photographer Brenda Bancel, these Epiphany School students explored the medium on their own terms. With plenty of encouragement and no rigid photography rules, the artists produced a body of work that tells their stories through the eyes of teenagers.

Internationally acclaimed photographer Ernesto Bazan will lead this special two-day workshop on building and editing a cohesive photography portfolio. The portfolio is the centerpiece of any photographer's repertoire. Every serious photographer must have a defined, well-produced body of work in order to be considered for publication or exhibition.
