FotoFest 2018 Biennial

Successes of the Meeting Place

The Meeting Place Portfolio Reviews are an important and integral part of the FotoFest Biennial. They provide an opportunity for 450 artists to meet with over 150 national and international curators, publishers, gallerists, and photography industry leaders. The FotoFest Meeting Place remains the most international and largest portfolio review program of its kind in the world.

Over the years, hundreds of artists and reviewers have sent letters and emails to FotoFest about the ways in which they have benefited through participation in the Meeting Place Portfolio Reviews. In 2008, FotoFest initiated and developed the Successes of the Meeting Place webpages as a way to highlight these accomplishments. Listed below are some of the many valuable opportunities that have came about through the Meeting Place Portfolio Reviews.

“The FotoFest Meeting Place 2016 has enriched my art practice beyond what I imagined. I met so many photographer/artists as well as photography experts! I was hopeful that there would be some interest in my work, however I did not imagine being offered two shows in Europe and one in the States. I am so grateful to FotoFest and their staff for all that they do to make the event happen so smoothly."
