Uganda Press Photo Award Portfolio Review 2023

Deadline: October 2, 2023

Applications are invited for the Uganda Press Photo Award Portfolio Review 2023. UPPA has been running the portfolio review since 2016 and it has been online-only and open to African photographers from across the entire continent for the last two years.

For the eighth year running they have invited an international panel of photography experts and industry insiders to meet photographers and provide constructive critiques of their work, advise them on their craft and guide them on their ongoing projects.

Some of this year’s reviewers were also on the judging panel for this year’s competitions so you can seek critical advice on entries you submitted to the award. However, beware! Not all of what you may hear will be flattering. You will receive unfiltered and unbiased feedback, and though it won’t all be easy to hear, it will certainly help you to see your photographic work from a new perspective.


  • This is your chance to talk to industry professionals and get fresh eyes on projects you’re working on, seek advice on technique and content, and get insight into how to market yourself and your work.


  • To be eligible for this free portfolio review you must be from one of the 54 African countries and primarily working on this continent.
  • At least one coherent body of work – a maximum of 30 carefully selected images sequenced as you’d wish them to be seen.
  • Ability to articulate your concept, vision, and photographic goals; it might be helpful to write it down.
  • Each participant should also be prepared to introduce her/himself, briefly mentioning his or her background.
  • Each participant is guaranteed at least 2 appointments of their choice. Each review session will be 25 min long.


The review will take place on October 27 & 28, 2023. It will be conducted via Zoom between 9:30 am and 5:30 pm EAT.
