Announcing the inaugural Portfolio Review Blitz Residency Award

Residency dates: 5–30 July 2017

We are pleased to announce a new addition to the 2017 Blitz Residency Programme. Cihad Caner is the recipient of the inaugural Portfolio Review Blitz Residency Award, a new collaboration between Blitz and Portfolio Review, which takes place at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf as part of Düsseldorf Photo Weekend. Through its residency programme, Blitz is offering a one month residency as part of the award programme for Portfolio Review in 2017 and 2018.

Alexandra Pace, Blitz Director, attended Düsseldorf Photo Weekend in early February as a member of the award selection jury, and for the curator tour of the photo weekend. Portfolio Review is a public event and a platform to discuss and discover young contemporary photography. Each year emerging artists from all over the world get selected to present their work to an international panel of curators, critics and editors working in the field of art and photography. The presentations are public and the images are screened with a projector offering both the specialist and general visitors of the Photo Weekend an insight into the artist’s process and methods. Besides getting exposure and feedback, the participating artists have the chance to win awards.
