So—what's the one thing, that if you did it more regularly, would have the most positive impact on your career and business? At APA Chicago we believe investing more time building relationships with creative decision-makers will deliver the most significant results for your job. 

To that end, we are assembling reviewers from agency creative departments to review member portfolios. Getting face time with art producers and creatives is challenging and time-consuming so APA Chicago is making the process a little easier. Register for this event and start the relationship building process today.

Agency reviewers:

  • Liz Miller-Gershfeld, VP, Art Buying Manager, Energy BBDO

  • Sheryl Long, Senior Art Buyer, Havas Chicago

  • Kim Knight, Photography Studio Producer, Prodigious

  • Cheryl Lindquist, Senior Producer, Scout

  • More reviews to be added soon

All Reviewers listed have agreed to review APA member portfolios on April 9th based their availability. We are in the process of securing the last few reviewers.

How the portfolio reviews work:

  1. Registered photographers will receive portfolio reviews with their three (3) hand-selected agency buyers/creative lasting 15 minutes each.

  2. Registered photographers will receive the final Reviewer list (based on Reviewer availability).

  3. Photographers will rank reviewers on a scale of 1-10. Reviewers they most want to meet with will get a 1, 2,3, through 10.

  4. APA Chicago will complete photographer review schedules in the order of registrations. The earlier you register for the Portfolio Reviews the better the chance you will get your top three choices.

  5. Photographers will receive their Review schedule prior to April 9.

  6. Even if a photographer doesn't receive their top three (3) Reviewers you will have the opportunity to network with the Reviewers.
