TPG Portfolio Reviews

Tue 18 Jan 2022 - Tue 18 Jan 2022

TPG staff host monthly online portfolio reviews for emerging through to established photographers. Each session reviewer will be allocated on a rotation basis, we are sorry not to be able to offer reviewers on request. Reviews take place between 10.00 and 18.00 BST on the day.

These 20-minute, one-to-one sessions take place online and are an opportunity to share practice and receive feedback on a specific project or on your photography work more generally. We recommend that you share 15-20 images in advance that will form the basis of your discussion. You may also wish to share short pieces of writing about your work. Do come prepared with any specific questions you may have about your work – this might be to gain your reviewer's thoughts on presentation formats or their ideas for other work or writing that could inform your practice.

Your assigned reviewer will contact you a week before your session (or within two days, if you book after this time). Photographers will be asked to send a link to the work they wish to be reviewed ahead of the session.

Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Bursary Places:

Two bursary places for UK-based photographers facing barriers to participation are available for each review session, also on a first come, first served basis. Please apply by emailing projects@tpg.org.uk by noon on the Friday before the session, briefly stating your reason for applying for a bursary place. All information will be kept confidential and anonymous, and destroyed after processing within GDPR guidelines.
