4. Current freshmen must submit their applications and original works to the Critique Room (CA 168). Applications for upperclassmen must be submitted to the Art & Design Office (CA 161) on the set deadline.

Guidelines for Digital Portfolio:

Portfolios must have at least 10 digital images, and no more than 10 additional views of 3-D works, or detail views of 2-D works.

Applicants should burn their presentation on a CD (note: do not use sticker labels on the CDs). The digital presentation may be an MS PowerPoint, or a single PDF file. Images should be 96ppi, and no more than 800 pixels in the longest dimensions (vertical / horizontal). Digital portfolios should include the following information about each submitted work:

1. Name
2. Title (should be italicized/underlined)
3. The medium
4. Date of Completion
5. Dimension:
a. 3D works: Height x Width x Depth
b. 2D works: Height x Width

Useful Tips:

• Use simple backgrounds such as black, white, or gray in your digital presentation. Let your work speak for itself.
• For 2-D works that are smaller, scan them with a flatbed scanner.
• For 2-D works that are bigger, photograph them hanging on a wall or try placing them flat on the floor. You can use two light sources that are exactly the same and place them at 450¬ angles.
• For 3-D works, use procedures recommended by your teacher or faculty member.
• Please avoid photographing your work on any kind of fabric. Use white matte board/paper instead.
• Consider taking your work to a professional photographer and paying them to properly photography your art for you.

Note: You can see a clear example of how your portfolio images should look like on the scholarship application forms.
