2010 Portfolio Reviews

[Designer wall at SCBWI Bologna]

Designer wall at SCBWI Bologna

A limited number of portfolio reviews slots are still available – submissions must be received by March 15th, 2010.

Professional portfolio reviews are optional and for an additional fee and are for confirmed SCBWI Bologna Symposium 2010 attendees only. A review is a 20-minute one-on-one meeting with an art director, or applicable publishing professional, and it will take place at the SCBWI Showcase Stand (Hall 26 Stand A66) during the Fair.

Applicants are required to send a SAMPLE PAGE of artwork in advance.

The sample should be a single low resolution file (150dpi or less), PDF or JPEG format and can contain one or more images. Attach and email your sample by March 15, 2010. Please include your name and contact details with the submission.

You will then be asked to bring your portfolio to the Book Fair at an appointed time. If your time at the book fair is limited, please contact us to discuss scheduling – most reviews will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

We are not able to offer any refunds.
