Last year we introduced the PosterSpy End of Year Portfolio Reviews which received hundreds of submissions. 10 artists were selected to receive critique from industry professionals and 3 artists won some amazing prices. It was a huge success.
Here we are over 10,000 poster uploads later ready to open the submissions again reviewing the posters of 2018.
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 win some special awards including a Wacom Cintiq and a ViewSonic 4K professional design monitor.
The 3 winners will also be interviewed about their work which will be posted on the official Wacom blog.
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 31st 2019. 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. Check back on this page on January 1st to see the submission form.
Portfolio submissions 1st Jan – Jan 31st 2019.
Top 10 chosen by February 21st 2019.
Announcement to follow. Approx end of Feb.
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.
I entered last year, can I enter again?
Yes. Even though you entered last year you can enter again, we are looking at how your work has progressed over 2018. Even if you placed in the top 10, there’s no reason why you can’t win this year.
Please read the full terms and conditions before submitting your portfolio.
