Each year thousands of posters are submitted to PosterSpy.com, this year, PosterSpy has grown more than we could imagine. We’ve seen artists join from countries all over the world and post their work. We’ve had artists join not knowing a thing about PosterSpy, artists are making friends and the community is evolving. It’s been a great year we even hit a huge milestone of over 10,000 posters being uploaded by artists around the world.
This year feels like the right time to introduce something new, the PosterSpy End of Year Portfolio Review. It’s our way of giving back to our growing community. One thing that we’ve always enjoyed on PosterSpy is seeing how artists grow. How their skills change, how their passions and energy transcend to their work.
We are openly inviting the PosterSpy community to submit their profiles (www.posterspy.com/profile/example) and 10 incredible artists will receive critique on their portfolios by 6 industry professionals, the top 3 of those artists will receive critique and some special awards.
How artists will be chosen
Each judge will receive links to the artists portfolios and will score the portfolios based on an in depth and broad criteria such as use of colour, typography, composition etc. We will tally up all the marks and the top 10 artists will receive critique from the judges and the top 3 will be awarded special prizes.
Submissions will be open from January 1st to January 14th 2018. All you need to do is give us your name and PosterSpy profile URL (www.posterspy.com/profile/example). Any portfolios submitted after this date will not be considered.
Portfolio submissions 1st Jan – Jan 14th.
Portfolio shortlist created by Jan 21st.
Top 10 chosen by February 7th.
Announcement February 14th.
I’ve only just opened a PosterSpy account, can I still submit my portfolio?
Yes, no problem. We will look at your profile as a whole and will judge it against the criteria. The length of your time on the website will not affect the overall decisions made.
Can I choose what pieces you look at?
No. Part of the judging process will be looking at your overall progress as an artist, how you’ve learned and improved. This will be something the judges may write about if you’re one of the 10 chosen artists. We want to see all the work you’ve uploaded, not pieces you hand pick.
I only have a few posters, is it worth me submitting?
Yes. Although having lots of posters will help us see how you’ve developed, We will critique all portfolios equally, whether you’ve uploaded 5 or 500 posters.
Please read the full terms and conditions before submitting your portfolio.
