The Folio Selection Committee currently meets in January each year.
Provisional bookings may be taken from September.
Whilst there are no specific rules governing the content or size of a portfolio, the Committee would like to see some recent examples of original work. Drawings, sketchbooks or other source material are particularly helpful.
A copy of a CV or indication of any training and experience should accompany the portfolio. Please include your name to display alongside your work.
The framing of pictures can be a guide as to how work might be submitted for exhibitions with the Society.
Please limit the number of very large pieces to two. Three or four smaller works can usually be accommodated at the selection venue.
Small pieces of 3D may accompany the portfolio submission or, if too difficult to transport, we suggest that the original
submission be in the form of photographs with accompanying drawings or maquettes.
Portfolio and work should be delivered to the venue (varies) at 10am on the viewing date and collected on the same day between 1 and 2pm. Delivery and collection will be the responsibility of the Candidate. The day may be split into two sessions for a large number of applicants.
The portfolio and all contents must be adequately labelled with name, telephone number, email and postal addresses.
Insurance for any loss or damage must be the Candidates responsibility.
Candidates will be notified of the result by email or post as soon as possible afterwards.
