PREPARING YOUR PORTFOLIO
Like last year, there will be tons of applications being sent in, so make sure your portfolio is in tip top shape. Before you send in your portfolio, we recommend:

A: Updating your portfolio to show your most recent work
B: Showing all of the different types of things that you will bring to your table
C: Showing how much art/merchandise you’ll be able to bring to your table.
D: And, since we know it’s that time of year, it would also be best if your portfolio doesn’t include Inktober.
* A photo of your table display from previous conventions is great to include as well!

NOTES ON PORTFOLIO
Your portfolio can be any format which contains pictures and displays your creations, anything from a website to an attached pdf. But if you’re not sure of your format we recommend DeviantArt, Tumblr, or Artstation. All we ask is that your portfolio contains ONLY your own work, as opposed to a personal blog.
