PORTFOLIO REQUIREMENTS

 

Create a website portfolio that showcases your art work.

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

  • PRO TIP:  Make sure that the pieces you want the judges to see at the top/beginning of your website.

 

  • IMPORTANT: 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

  • 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.

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

  • All showcased work should be created entirely by you.

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

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.​ 

ADDITIONAL VIDEOS/PORTFOLIO

 

The online application has space for two (2) additional links for videos or online portfolios/websites to showcase your talents BEYOND your primary specialty.

ALL LINKS TO PORTFOLIOS MUST BE ACCESSIBLE TO THE PUBLIC. 

No passwords/private sites.

FREE WEBSITE BUILDING SITES

Below are a few suggestions for online website builders:​

 

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.

  • 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.
