What precautions will be taken regarding COVID-19?
We are committed to the health and safety of our participating photographers, reviewers, exhibiting artists, staff, volunteers and all others in our community who will be joining us in Denver.

To maintain the health and safety of the MOP Portfolio Reviews, we ask that participants, including photographers, reviewers, and volunteers, be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


CPAC continues to monitor the health and safety protocols issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and will provide any important updates to participants if the response to COVID-19 changes.
