2021 Emerging Designers’ Portfolio Review

You’re invited to participate in AIGA Upstate New York’s annual portfolio review event! Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s portfolio review is being conducted completely online during the weeks of April 5-16, 2021.

For emerging designers, this is a great opportunity to share your portfolio with Upstate design professionals and receive important feedback. Please fill out and submit the following form at your earliest convenience.

For industry professionals, we need you to sign up to review portfolios and provide thoughtful feedback and help our next generation of designers! Even if you’ve only been working as a designer for a year or two, your input is really helpful to folks who are just starting out, and your experience getting that first job is fresh in your mind.

This review is open to all emerging designers, whether you are in school, or self-taught, a recent grad, in a bootcamp, switching careers, etc. If you are job hunting for your first design job, or will be soon and need feedback, this event is for you!

Once we’ve paired up reviewers with emerging designers, we’ll contact you with additional information.

The deadline for signups is March 31st, 2021. You will be contacted about your pairings by April 3, 2021. The reviews will be scheduled on an individual basis with your reviewer, and will be conducted over Webex, Zoom, or whatever video platform you feel most comfortable using.
