    The PRC Portfolio Review Series is a free benefit of PRC membership and one review is allotted to each current member once per programming year (September through August). In each portfolio review event six members will be granted reviews and will be selected via lottery.

    This is an opportunity to individually discuss your work with professionals in the arts including curators, gallerists, critics, photographers, and more. Reviewers bring a wide variety of experience, aesthetic sense, focus, and expertise. To get the most benefit from your portfolio review, check the particular reviewer’s background and request to meet with those who best fit the art and objectives of your work. Each review is 20-minutes long. To make the best use of your review, select a number of images from one or two series. Think about what you want out of the session, and let the reviewer know so you can get the most value from the experience. Members are asked to arrive 5 minutes prior to the scheduled review time.
