1 more to confirm


Please submit ONE landscape pdf, including your resume and 5 work pages together.
It must be named firstname_surname.pdf so we can match it with your details.
Deadline COB Wednesday 18 November, 5pm.




Just to confirm, is it ONE PDF landscape that includes a resume and 5 pieces of work? 
Correct. Just think of it as applying for a job. Your resume (one page) plus 2-5 projects (total including the resume should be five pages).


Are these essentially 5 moodboards of 5 different projects you have completed? So 1 moodboard for each project? Or are they just 5 moodboards showing a multitude of different projects?
We want to see the final outcomes of your projects, not a moodboard of what the project is. Again, imagine applying for a job. See comment above!


What will the criteria be?
We’re looking for industry standard portfolios – work is creatively driven, solving a problem, well communicated and original aesthetics. The presentation, mockups/photography and information you put on each page explains the project are all factors.


This is fab! Can you submit multiple projects?
Of course. See FAQ 1 above.


What information to I need to cover?
Your resume should have your Contact Details, Employment History, Education, Awards/Competitions, plus other headings if you’re feeling game. Your work pages should have Project Title, Client (or Uni project – please credit others if they were involved), month/year it was done, and a project overview explaining what the project was about, plus any other information you feel is relevant.


Are there preferred dimensions (A4 or A3)?
No, as it will be viewed onscreen. Landscape preferably!


Any other questions, email us at hello (at) and we’ll happily answer them!
