As in previous years at the LUMIX Festival for Young Photojournalism, experienced and well-known photographers and picture editors familiar with the photo market will offer free portfolio reviews. These free viewings will underscore our philosophy of supporting young photojournalists and encouraging their creative development. The reviewers will take 30 minutes to review each portfolio, which can be shown digitally. In the past years, next to others Agency C3, Laif Agency, VISUM Agency, the Spiegel Magazine, the Stern Magazine, the Dutch Newspaper De Volkskrant, Mare Magazine, the French Magazine 6Mois, professors from the Danish DMJX-University in Aarhus as well as independent photographers and some of our lecturers participated as reviewers.

To apply for a portfolio review, please send the filled form at portfolio@fotofestival-hannover.de. For any question concerning the portfolio review, you can contact us via this mail as well.
