Your options

One of the advantages of online reviews is that you get to meet well-prepared reviewers who have seen your work before meeting you. This way, you can go straight to the point when the online review begins.

You can start out with a single review, choose to discuss your portfolio with several reviewers or work with a particular reviewer over time. It's completely up to you.

A single online review

Your reviewer will take time to go through your portfolio and written material before meeting you online. The fee covers the reviewer’s preparation time and a 30-minute review on Skype.

First-time bookers get 20% off!

“The Portfolio Dialogue website is something that I was very happy to find! 30 minutes felt like the right amount of time. Having the reviewer see my work and check my website in advance is a huge advantage of this online review over in-person 20-minute reviews. The review made me optimistic that my work can find positive interest among European curators.”
