Attend the Portfolio Review
The PhotoNOLA Portfolio Review is open to photographers on a first come, first served basis. PhotoNOLA is not a juried review, however participants should be emerging to mid-career level photographers, with a solid body of work and a history of exhibitions and/or publications. Participants will have 8 one-on-one 20 minute sessions with reviewers over two days, a spot at the PhotoWALK and a chance at the PhotoNOLA Review Prize.
Submit an Exhibition Proposal for 2023
Interested in exhibiting for the 18th annual PhotoNOLA Festival in 2023? Please submit your exhibition proposal by filling out the exhibition proposal form. The proposals will be reviewed by the exhibitions committee. We do our best to match artists with venues throughout New Orleans but have a limited number of venues. Artists are encouraged to pursue their own venues as well.
- While selected exhibitions are obligated to run during the entirety of the Festival, December 13-17, 2023, most exhibits run the entire month of December.
- PhotoNOLA (coordinated by the New Orleans Photo Alliance) does not have a budget for producing, shipping, or installing exhibitions. Artists are responsible for the expenses and labor involved in installing an exhibition at available venues.
- The handling of sales and commission should be agreed upon between the artist and venue. Paper agreements are encouraged. PhotoNOLA does not accept responsibility for any damages accrued by work or the venue during the exhibition
