2016 Portfolio Review and registration dates

Medium Festival of Photography 2015

We’re excited to announce the festival dates and portfolio review registration for 2016. Medium returns to San Diego this fall, getting underway with our acclaimed Eye to Eye Portfolio Reviews on Oct. 20-21, followed by our Present Tense Lecture Series from Oct. 21-23. Registration for the Eye to Eye Portfolio Reviews opens at 9:00am PST on March 17. Last year our reviews sold out in less than 48 hours so we encourage interested photographers to register early!

The line up of 2016 guest lecturers and festival events will be announced in spring 2016. These will include the return of our juried exhibition Size Matters and much more. Stay tuned to our eblasts and follow us @mediumsandiego on social media to learn more, complete festival registration will open in June 2016.

We’re looking forward to another incredible year of photography in San Diego and welcoming photographers and curators from across the country!
