We are delighted to announce the PhotoNOLA 2018 Review Prize recipients: Congratulations to Rich Frishman, Meg Griffiths, and Colleen Fitzgerald!

PhotoNOLA’s Portfolio Review program offers emerging to established photographers the chance to present their work to influential members of the photographic community. Photographers convene for two days of face-to-face meetings with gallery owners, editors, publishers and museum curators.
