Portfolio Review

Are you convinced of the quality of your photographs and determined to go to the next level by making an exhibition, a photobook, or simply looking for an expert opinion to give your project a punch?
If you are one of the 18 participants, you will have the opportunity to present your projects to 10 experts in the field of photography, including gallerists, curators, festival directors, critics and publishers. For 3 hours, you will have the chance to receive valuable input and constructive feedback on your work for 20 minutes with each of them.
This Portfolio Viewing will not only give you the opportunity to get expert and professional feedback on your project, but it is also an excellent opportunity to establish contacts and give it a boost both nationally and internationally, as the viewers are particularly interested in getting to know talents like yours, and the scope of this activity is global.



Who can apply?

Photographers of any level, nationality, origin or place of residence, who work in the field of photography, both chemical and digital, can apply. It will be valued that the works have originality, projection and a powerful concept.
The stage of development of the project will not be taken into account.
There is no age limit, but minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian.
Possibility of viewing in Spanish or English.


The presentation of the works is done through PICTER, a platform that allows displaying them in the most suitable way for the jury members to make their assessments and selections.

In the PICTER form the following information is requested:

  • Between 10 and 15 images, in JPG, at least 1500px per side.
  • Description of the project (project title, project description, project year)
  • author (basic information and biography up to 1500 characters).

*The registration fee for the call is 20€ (10€ for friends). Only the 18 selected individuals will be required to pay a participation fee of 100€.

Development of the activity

The viewing will take place on Friday 24 May, in two shifts, morning and afternoon, with a total duration of 3 hours each shift.
During the viewing, the author will have a place assigned with his/her name and a table where to place his/her images, and the viewers will move from one table to the other in 20-minute periods.
*This method will allow the photographers to gain individual insights from each viewer and acquire diverse and personal knowledge and advice.
The 18 participants of the viewing will have an accreditation that will give them unlimited access to all the exhibitions of the festival and will be invited to a private dinner that same Friday after the opening, with the rest of the authors of the edition, residents, gallery owners, viewers… to be able to follow the conversations in a much more relaxed way and to create greater links with those professionals with whom they have connected during the activity. And also, why not, to have a bit of fun in the cosy space of the Fábrica de Cal Garbat 😉
The screening will take place on Friday 24 May, in two shifts of morning and afternoon, with a total duration of 3h each shift. You will have to select the shift when you register for the event
Morning shift: May 24th from 10am to 1:15pm.
Afternoon shift: May 24th from 16 to 19:15h


The jury that will select the eighteen photographers that will participate in the activity will be composed by Marc Ávila and the Revela’t management team.

    He joins the festival as a result of being the first winner of the Portfolio Screening and coordinates the screening from the next edition.

    And… The prize?

    Participating in the screening is an opportunity that can propel your project as far as you are willing, and the contacts and knowledge you can acquire on this day are, in themselves, a prize.

    But there’s more; from all the projects screened, one will be selected to participate as an exhibition in the Revela’t 2025 festival. The festival will take care of the production, setup, and expenses related to the exhibition.

    This prize will be selected by the Revela’t team, taking into account the opinions and advice of the viewers. The prize will be announced once the current edition is concluded.

    For the selection of the project to be exhibited in the 2025 festival, the quality of the project, its alignment with the theme of the 2025 edition, and its compatibility with the exhibition discourse will be considered.


    • Registration start date 19/12/2023
    • End date of registration 12/02/2024
    • Date of announcement of decision 11/03/2024
    • Event date 24/05/2024


    En blanco
    I would like to submit more than one project, is this possible?

    Yes, of course. You can submit as many projects as you wish, each one counts as one submission.

    Can I apply as a duo or collective?

    Yes, but in case you are selected, only one representative will be allowed to come to the screening day.

    Can I submit projects that have already been produced and typeset?

    The Portfolio Viewing is a great opportunity to make contacts and gain international exposure, but above all it is a moment to learn, listen and exchange opinions and criticisms with professionals who can make your project grow or improve in the future. You can present a finished project, but we encourage you to come open to give it a twist and welcome other views and contributions about it.

    What does the registration and participation fee cover?

    The €20 fee contributes to the administration and promotion costs that cover the selection process and the equipment and material for the event. If you are a Friend of Revela’t, as you already contribute to the festival in another way, you benefit from a 50% discount on the registration fee. In no case the registration fee will be refunded. The participation fee partially covers the expenses of the team involved in the event (coordination, production and jury). The participation fee (100€) will be paid ONLY by the photographers selected for the viewing. The friend discount does not apply to the participation fee.

    If I am a Friend of Revela't, how can I get my 50% discount?

    All Revela’t Friends will receive a CODE by mail to enter the call with the discount.

    Is it possible to listen in on the viewings?

    No, the Portfolio Viewing is a closed-door activity, which can only be attended by the photographers selected in the call.

    What happens if I am unable to attend the viewing?

    Any change of attendance and timetable must be notified at least 30 calendar days before the viewing day. In the event of not being able to attend, 50% of the participation fee will be refunded. If 30 days notice cannot be given, the participation fee will not be refunded, as it is considered that the organization does not have enough time to replace the vacant place.

    Can I submit a digital project?

    Yes, in the Portfolio Viewing you can submit both analogue and digital projects.

    If I am selected, can I carry the images on my computer?

    No. Selected photographers must bring their images on paper, size A5 to A3.
