PHOTO MATCH’s model breathes new life into the traditional formula of portfolio reviews through placing a special emphasis on the series of open networking events, public presentations and an equal status granted to the reviewers as well as all artists. Twenty reviewers and twenty authors will be invited to participate this year in a unique edition organized together by Fotofestiwal and Krakow Photomonth Festival.
WHAT EXACTLY IS PHOTO MATCH?
VIEWING PRESENTATIONS 3-6 of August 2020
Due to the special online edition we decided to dedicate more time to slowly view the presentations from authors and experts. During these four days you will have a chance to see the brief presentations made by all participants who will showcase their most ingenious projects.
SESSION ONE: MATCHING 7th of August 11:00AM – 1:00PM CET
At this point, the photographers and reviewers are granted access to the online system that allows them to match and book two personal meetings with one another. It means each participant is going to have 4 meetings during the afternoon session.
SESSION TWO: ONLINE MEETINGS 7th of August 2:00PM – 4:00PM CET
Session two is devoted to the series of private meetings held in accordance with the timetable generated by the online reservation system. Every photographer and reviewer attends four meetings at the most, two of which they’ve arranged themselves. PHOTO MATCH will conclude with an open session, an informal gathering of all participants who can finally enjoy some conversation with someone previously unavailable, with no strings attached.
