Get your portfolio reviewed

We’re excited to be offering the chance for aspiring students to submit their portfolio for review by a current industry expert. They will meet with you in person and spend 30 minutes talking through the portfolio offering feedback on the strength of your current work and guidance on areas for potential improvement.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those starting out to gain real world feedback without the pressure of a formal assessment or job interview scenario.

To be eligible to submit a portfolio for review, you must be:
• Aged 18 – 24
• Living, or studying, within the West Midlands
• Available on Saturday 1 February to come to Leamington Spa

The closing date for the submission of your portfolio is Thursday 24 January midday. We will notify entrants if they’ve been selected for a review by Tuesday 29 January.

Dependent upon the response level, we may not be able to offer every entrant a review.
