PORTFOLIO REQUIREMENTS

 

Create a website portfolio that showcases your art work.

IMPORTANT: Put your strongest pieces first.

We are not looking for perfection but we are looking for artistry. If you are nominated, we assume you are talented.  Use this opportunity to show us what you are trying to explore/create/convey as an artist.​ Show us work that resonates with you.

For ALL PORTFOLIOS

  • Make sure your name is on your website/portfolio.

  • You need to include at minimum three (3) works of art on the website (except for Animation). There is no maximum limit on the number of images that you may include.

  • When we open your portfolio, we should see your art right away. We should not have to dig through various links to find your work.

  • Each work of art should be labeled with:

 

:: the title of the piece​

:: the medium(s) used to make the piece

:: the size dimensions of the piece

  • All showcased work should be created entirely by you. If you include work that was created by a team, you should be the primary creative voice used to create the piece.

  • If you want to showcase more than one design specialty, you may include all work on the same website.

For 3D ART

  • We suggest you show multiple views of each piece so that we can get an idea of the shape and work completed from multiple views.

For ANIMATION 

  • You only need to send a link to one piece of animation. You do not need to make a portfolio.  You will be asked to showcase a second piece of animation if you are invited to the semifinal round.  See the Film and TV Videos page for instructions on how to format for your video.

CREATING YOUR ONLINE PORTFOLIO

 

ALL LINKS MUST BE ACCESSIBLE TO THE PUBLIC. 

** No passwords/privacy settings. **

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")

- OR -

  • Create a free website. Free website building sites include:

:: wix.com

:: weebly.com

:: sites.google.com - there is even a portfolio template you can use

  • Please do NOT use Instagram to share your work. Some of the judges are not able to access Instagram when viewing your work while on school computers.

  • 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 are not likely to open pictures one at a time. 

PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE EXAMPLES

 

Below are EXAMPLES of artist websites by professional artists.

Ultimately, you have the freedom to be creative with how you present your work, BUT make sure you highlight your best work, and label each piece with the title, medium(s), and size dimensions (when applicable).
