PORTFOLIO PRESENTATION
Presentation of the portfolio is very important. Consider this 
just as you would an interview. You are being judged by all
that is in your portfolio and you don't even get a chance
to say a word.

TEN TIPS FOR CREATING A STRONG PORTFOLIO

2.   Organizing and Presentation (Matting) Neat and clean,
      Make sure tape is secure
3.   Starting strong (one of best pieces at beginning)
4.   Portfolio flows(One color, next black/white then color...
5.   Portfolio Spreads (Work looks good if interviewer places 
      work next to each other.
6.   End strong (Last work as good as the first)
7.   Labeling your work (Name, "title" and medium) on each one
8.   The amount of work (12-20 pieces)
9.   Practice your presentation (Be able to speak about each
      piece but ONLY IF THEY ASK YOU.
10.  Other essential items (Should bring a CD of the work you 
      are showing.
