Required by THEATRICAL DESIGN nominees.
Create an online portfolio that showcases your design specialty.
IMPORTANT: Put your strongest work FIRST.
Include your name on your website/portfolio.
Portfolio elements should showcase your thought process when designing a show. To do this, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to include:
:: mood boards or other samples of your inspiration
:: design sketches
:: descriptions of the design intention
:: photos of the final product (for those designs that became produced show).
We encourage you to showcase designs from more than one show if possible.
Ultimately, the more information we have, the easier it will be to evaluate the artistic merits of your design process and choices.
If you want to showcase more than one design specialty, you may include all work on the same website.
CREATING YOUR ONLINE PORTFOLIO

You may use any online format that you feel comfortable using. Please make sure that whatever you work you share is accessible to viewers with a single click.
Portfolio online platforms to consider include:
Create a Google Slides slideshow (make sure when you share this link, under "General Access", it should be marked as "Anyone with the link" can be a "Viewer")

Create a free website. Free website building sites include:
Please do NOT use Instagram to share your work. Some of the judges are not able to access Instagram.
Please do NOT send a link to a folder with jpgs stored in them (i.e. a Google Drive folder, Dropbox folder, or other cloud based folder). The judges will not open pictures one at a time.
