WHAT TO BRING:
Bring your portfolio whether it’s finished or still in the works. Worried that you don’t have enough editorial design work in your book to show? We don’t care, bring it on!

• If your portfolio is in print form, it doesn’t have to be a finished book for us to look at it … we’ll look at printouts or tearsheets, and help advise you on how to put the pages together if needed.

• If you have it on your tablet or laptop, it doesn’t have to be in a finished website or tablet app … as long as the images are pre-loaded and easy to scroll through, we’ll look at whatever form you have them in. Just be sure the images are ready to go and separate from other stuff; each review is timed, so if you’re wasting time finding your work, there’s less time you have for real critique and advice. We also cannot guarantee wifi access, so if you don’t have your own access, make sure your images are accessible offline as well.

THE REVIEWERS:
Names to be announced soon! Stay tuned.
