Re: SCAD - MFA portfolio help/guidelines

There is no pre-defined way to write a portfolio which means that every different person has its own approach of writing a portfoliio. The basic this which you need to know for writing a portfolio is to understand what kind of portfolio you are creating.

Simply speaking you can take your own time thinking about what you will show in each of these cases and prepare accordingly. The presentation level should be excellent in your portfolio.

All the pages must be designed in such a way that shows you can quickly and effectively communicate complex ideas in a professional manner.

I would advice you to indicate the images that are present in the inventory sheet if it is manipulated digitally. The portfolio should also exhibit a coherence of vision and it should be excellent i crafting. Significant experience of making photographs should be demonstrated and it should reveal all your aesthetic awareness and strong technical skills. It should also reflect your capacity to develop an in-depth and consistent investigation. Additionally the aspirants must an example of the scholarly writing in order to show their communication skills.

Re: SCAD - MFA portfolio help/guidelines

A strong portfolio shows the intellectual and artistic abilities, as well as the capacity to develop an idea through a series of work. Applicants are allowed to include related work that indicates their current artistic expertise. If you keep your descriptions short and precise while showing your book and flip through at a consistent pace, a potential employer usually won?t mind a few extra projects .
A written statement should be submitted to demonstrate level of ability to summarize relevant issues in the current work; describe intended research or future direction; and provide insights into the applicant's concepts, focus and self-awareness.
