Portfolio Requirements
Please bring 5-8 artworks created in any media for your portfolio.We strongly prefer to see actual artwork, but we are willing to view artwork on laptops/tablets.

This event is free, but advance registration is required to be guaranteed a review. You can register for a maximum of 4 slots right now.  Please do not register for more than 1 slot with the same reviewer, all slots you sign up for have to be with different reviewers, to be fair to the other participants. Every participant must register themselves with their own email address. Please do not register for more than 1 person using the same email address, as it is confusing from our end exactly who is registered for what slot.

Register here

If there are still slots open the day of the event,  you can sign up for as many reviews as you want, with whoever you want, on a first-come, first-serve basis. You are welcome to show up the day of the event without registering in advance, however, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a review. If you are not present at your slot time, your slot will be given to someone else.
