We know how important critical feedback is to fine-tuning your work, and we want you to feel as confident as possible every time you submit to a call for entry. Enter the Emerging Talent Awards 2017 and you qualify for a free Submission Review. These are critiques written by industry professionals that include personalized feedback on how to make your submission stronger—what is working well and what can be improved—as well as recommendations for improving your practice and preparing your work for competitions, grants, juried exhibitions, and other calls for entries. 


"Thank you! This was really a terrific and thoughtful review. It’s tough once you hit a point in your work to get the type of critical review that pushes you forward, and I think you guys do as good a job as I’ve seen given the format and resources (i.e. not an in-person critique or formal portfolio review). In fact, your reviewers’ suggestions on a previous project helped me be named as PhotoLucida finalist in 2016 which led to a show at the Annenberg Space in LA.!"
