PhotoNOLA’s Portfolio Review program offers photographers the chance to present their work to influential members of the photographic community. Photographers convene for two days of face-to-face meetings with gallery owners, editors, publishers and museum curators from throughout the U.S. and abroad.

At the end of the weekend, reviewers are asked to rank their favorite portfolios. The photographer earning the most votes is awarded the PhotoNOLA Review Prize, which includes a solo exhibition at the New Orleans Photo Alliance gallery the following December, a $1000 cash prize, and a marketing consultation with Mary Virginia Swanson. Second and third place winners are recognized on the PhotoNOLA website.
