Below are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding our portfolio reviews and the review registration process.
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.

Your $500 registration fee will guarantee that you will receive 8 twenty-minute reviews over two days: Thursday, December 10 and Friday, December 11, 2020.
The registration process will be completed electronically through the photonola.org website. Your $500 payment to the New Orleans Photo Alliance must be completed at that time to guarantee your spot.
After the review has filled, we begin a waiting list and interested photographers will be contacted in the case of cancellations.
All participating photographers will be asked to provide one high-resolution image representing their work, which PhotoNOLA will use in a photographers’ guide for the reviewers and to promote the PhotoWALK on the photonola.org website.
Reviewer selection: Shortly after the registration, confirmed participants will be asked to rank all of the reviewers in order of preference. Every effort will be made to schedule meetings with the reviewers that each participant most wants to connect with.
You will receive your review schedule via email no later than December 3, 2020.
While we expect all the confirmed reviewers to be available for their online review sessions, in the unfortunate event that one or more of our selected reviewers should have to cancel, we will make every effort to fill their spot with an equally high-caliber reviewer.
