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.
