From among 20 participants of this year’s portfolio review, the team of Krakow Photomonth and Fotofestiwal in Lodz selected two winners who will present their projects in the form of exhibitions during upcoming editions of both festivals – Krakow Photomonth Festival 2021 and Fotofestiwal in Lodz 2021.
It was a unique edition in many aspects: it was created for the first time by the Krakow Photomonth and Fotofestiwal together, for the first time in an online version, which allowed to invite participants from all over the world, with an event scenario combining Photo-Match in Łódź and Krakow Photomonth’s Portfolio Review. On August 7th, twenty experts and twenty photographers took part in group and individual creative consultations. As a result, the program councils of both festivals chose two projects that will be shown in the form of exhibitions during the upcoming editions in 2021.
The winners of PHOTO MATCH: PORTFOLIO REVIEW 2020 / Online edition are:
- Marta Bogdańska @marta.bogdanska, SHIFTERS – exhibition in Krakow, Krakow Photomonth 2021
- Sebastian Collet @wellseen, Ghost Man – exhibition in Łódź, Fotofestiwal 2021
The level of presented work was very high, so in addition to selecting two winners who will present their work in the form of exhibition, the jury decided to shortlist 5 artists whose projects stood out and attracted the attention of the reviewers:
- Martyna Basta @martynkabasta
- Xue Jiang @xue_jiang_j
- Michał Maliński @mlekoyo
- Monika Orpik @monika.orpik
