This is not a photo contest and not about a web design contest in San Francisco but it might be of interest to designers out there. I showed some of my photos at a photo event in Lodz a few years ago.
Portfolio review is a very popular and attractive form of presenting own work to specialists in a given field. The 4th International Festival of Design in Łódź – LDZIGN 2010 offers, for the first time in Poland, such an opportunity in pattern design. The event is directed to students and graduates of art schools and designers who have been present in the market for some time. Meetings with design professionals, like curators, product managers, designers and producers, give a chance to verify skills, knowledge and ways of presentation of projects. Submitting a portfolio to evaluation by reviewers creates an opportunity to verify the presented ideas and may result in the implementation of an idea into a production process, an exhibition offer or a publication. Participants will be chosen on the basis of submitted applications.
