The Portfolio Review is a public event where all those interested in photography are invited to participate with their photography projects, in front of a jury and/or an audience. The purpose is to have an open discussion about those projects and where they are heading, with the intent to present them, in the near future, in exhibitions, projections or even photo albums.

This year, we invite all the photographers with such projects, to present them in Photo Romania festival, with the possibility to show them in exhibitions or other forms. The best projects will be awarded in the following ways: first prize will consist in a printed exhibition that will be shown in 2018 in Romania; second prize will consist in a printed photo album; and third prize will be in the form of a photo projection in 2018. Also, these projects will be recommended to other photography festivals from the Photo Europe Network (PHEN), with the possibility of being presented within these events in the future years.
