HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Reviews are purchased in blocks of five. The price for 5 reviews is $375. There is a 10% discount (not combinable with other discounts) that is applied when 10 or more reviews are purchased.
Pre-registered attendees in our review program will receive several emails in early April with instructions for selecting and prioritizing their reviewers on Friday, April 14th. In this way, no one has an advantage over anyone else. Everyone’s choices are treated equally.
We will use our best efforts to guarantee at least three of every five reviewer choices (for 10 or more reviews, two day’s attendance is required).
For those we can’t allocate (unlikely), we will assign reviews from a list you will provide of your alternate reviewer choices or assign you “like” affiliation reviewers. In other words, if the last two choices are from the Editorial affiliation, we’ll use our best efforts to assign other magazine photo editors or art directors from the same or a similar magazine category if we can’t assign those selected. In addition, each morning beginning at 8:00 am, at the Festival Portfolio Review desk, attendees will be able to register for the reviews of their choice from those remaining if any.
Reviews are by appointment only. Additional series of five, ten, fifteen or twenty reviews each may be purchased upon request. Attendees should be present in our waiting area at least 15 minutes before reviews. We reserve the option to allow others to take the review on a first-come basis if attendees are not in the waiting area three minutes before the review is scheduled to begin.
Our review blocks are scheduled as follows:
Block One: 9:00am – 11:25am [six 20-minute review segments]
Block Two: 11:40am – 2:05pm [six 20-minute review segments] (not applicable on Friday, May 12th).
Block Three 2:20pm – 4:50pm [six 20-minute segments] (not applicable on Friday, May 12th).
Because of the time-sensitive nature of reserving portfolio reviews, we can only refund 100% of your registration fees until midnight, April 13th, 2017. Between April 13th and April 25th we can refund 50% of your registration fees in case of cancellation, and after April 25th, no refunds will be made.
