FORMAT PORTFOLIO REVIEW FAQ
Our bespoke booking system enables you to choose the Reviewers you want to see at the time you want to see them. It is a first come first serve basis. You can view and select the slots you want via the drop down box under each reviewer. Once your slots have been chosen, you will have 30 minutes to complete the transaction. Please note, your reviews are not confirmed until you have paid.
WHO CAN BOOK?
These Reviews are aimed at photographers (or multimedia artists) with a developed and serious approach to their practice. Recent graduates are welcome. Please contact the Portfolio Review Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries.
WHAT TIME ZONE DO THE REVIEWS TAKE PLACE IN?
All time zones are in GMT.
HOW CAN I BOOK?
Bookings will open on Monday 11 December at 2pm GMT. When bookings have gone live the review slots under each reviewer will be available to add to your basket.
Our dedicated booking system will accept all major credit and debit cards.
The Portfolio Review will take place online, via zoom.
There is a NO REFUND policy and reviews are NON-TRANSFERABLE. Once you book, your reviews are final. We advise you look through the Reviewers and make a list of at least 15 that you would like to see, in the order you would like to see them so that you are prepared when you book.
In the case that a Reviewer has had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances, we will make every effort to assign you with another Reviewer. FORMAT cannot be held accountable for this and will not offer a refund.
HOW DO THE REVIEWS TAKE PLACE?
FORMAT will email a zoom link prior to the event. The reviews will begin at 10am GMT each day. Please ensure you arrive to the zoom link 10 minutes prior to each review to ensure the reviews take place on time. When the review begins, you will enter the ‘main room’ of the reviews. Each review takes place in a zoom ‘break-out’ room which FORMAT will assign at the beginning of each review, which lasts 20 minutes exactly. You will be given a 5 minute and 1 minute alert in each review. The break-out room will close automatically after 20 minutes and you will return to the main room, thus ending the review. There will be a 10 minute break in between each review and a 40 minute lunch break at 1pm.
Note: It is the responsibility of the photographer to ensure you are on time to each review, FORMAT cannot guarantee that any latecomers will be able to catch up with the lost time.
WHERE CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION ON THE REVIEWS?
Each year, prior to the reviews, we hold an information session, free to attend. For more information on this years event, please click here.
