In connection with Landskrona Foto Festival, the festival arranges a Portfolio Review for professional photographers and photo-based artists. It is important that the portfolio show has the opportunity to lead to exhibitions for participating photographers and we have a good result from former years. Several participants have been invited to the fotofestivals of Derby, Athens, Dublin and Leipzig among others, because of our Portfolio Review. Besides that, several photobooks are published amongst others on the German publishing company Kehrer.
As the result of every Portfolio Review, a winning photographer is also selected in Landskrona Foto and in Artproof Portfolio of the Year Award. The winning contribution will be exhibited during the next upcoming Foto Festival.
