About the Event
Good enough is not enough. Not when it comes to presenting your portfolio. The competition for you as a creative professional is absolutely FIERCE! For EVERY opportunity! You have to assume that everyone else knows how to present their portfolio brilliantly. You have to be able to do the same. So that art directors, jurors, commissioners, clients – whoever looks at your portfolio – can assess your work clearly on its merits and be convinced. This workshop will go through basic do’s and don’ts, so that when you present your portfolio people pay attention.
David McClyment has been pitching portfolios for over 40 years as a professional fine artist. Of course, he has faced rejection many times. But he has also had success with galleries, curators, grant juries, and competitions. He has also served on juries and selection committees – and seen what works, and what doesn’t! Please note that McClyment’s personal professional experience is limited to the fine arts world. But the larger points in this workshop should apply to other creative disciplines. Wherever possible, he will endeavour to tailor the information to your specific situation.
