The Portfolio Intensive gives student and emerging and professional illustrators the opportunity to present their portfolios to professionals in the children’s publishing industry. Illustrators will be put into groups to show their work (including book dummies) for industry focused feedback from art directors, designers and artist’s agents on portfolio content and presentation. Illustrators will be able to sign up for a reviewer before the event, though numbers will affect how the groups are formed. Also covered will be important information on targeting the right publisher or agent for your work. This session is a great opportunity to network with professionals from the industry and other illustrators, published and yet to be published. Don’t miss out on the chance to get your work seen by experts and to take your portfolio to the next level.

The Illustrator Masterclass Series are hands on workshops for illustrators (and sometimes writers), published and unpublished that focus on art technique, professional issues in children's publishing, marketing and presentation skills and inspiration on the 'craft' of visual storytelling. As some of us are writers too, issues on writing and illustrating are addressed. It's also a great place to meet other illustrators and share news, get support and receive important feedback to help your career.
