Photographers Are You Ready For The 2013 Filter Photo Festival? - September 25th -29th, 2013
Earlier this year I told you to mark your calendars for a photo festival that was to take place this coming fall, well guess what, it is right around the corner and there’s a lot more information. The non-profit Filter Photo is getting ready for its 2013 Filter Photo Festival where the majority of the events will be taking place right here in Chicago in the Loop area. There will be lectures, tours, panel discussions, the chance to network and definitely the main purpose of the event, reviewing of portfolios.
Filter Photo dedicates itself to the promotion of Chicago photographers and its community and with such an event it aims to connect all levels of photographers as well as connecting professionals with gallery owners, curators, educators and the sort.
The festival is taking place from September 25th – 29th, 2013. For the 2013 Portfolio Reviews you can sign up today for packages of 5 or 8 portfolio reviews and have your work reviewed by industry professionals. Single reviews and student reviews open on September 1st, 2013 and the dates for these are from Friday September 27th – Sunday September 29th, 2013 from 9am – 5pm at the Blake Hotel on 500 South Dearborn.
