Works responding to the 2023 edition’s theme of the Portuguese reference festival, Essay for the Future, are welcome to apply for the Festival’s annual portfolio reviews. Each year, the reviews are putting photographers in touch with internationally and nationally acclaimed gallerists, commissioners, publishers and curators, shaping opportunities for the participants’ artistic developments.

Among the reviewed projects, one will eventually be selected for a 5000 € prize, plus a solo exhibition at Encontros da Imagem festival in 2024, where the nine remaining finalists will be exhibited in a group show.
