Sign Up Now for Portfolio Reviews

Erin Joy Swank

Participants at the Cincinnati 2015 Conference & Stage Expo will have the opportunity for professionals to assess their portfolios. The deadline to apply is February 21. Slots fill up quickly, so sign up as soon as possible.

The reviews are available for people at every level from student to seasoned professional. All applicants must be either individual USITT members or registered for the Conference (Stage Expo only passes will not be accepted).

Topics of interest are costume design, education, lighting design, management, scene design, properties design, scenic art, scenography, sound design, and technical production.

For scene design, Ann Cadaret has provided helpful and specific guidelines for portfolios. Costumers’ information is available online, and the Education Commission is offering special sessions for those seeking tenure.

E-mail the following information to the contact person for the specific area: name; address; phone number(s); fax; e-mail; university, college, or company; area of interest; and undergraduate student, graduate student, professional, or other status.

All registrants will be notified that their application has been received and of their review time, date, and location before the start of the Conference. Any applicant who wishes to have a digital portfolio reviewed should bring a laptop with the portfolio and appropriate software loaded. Internet access is not guaranteed for the review, though it is a possibility.

For more information, call 800-938-7488 or 315-463-6463 or e-mail the USITT Office.
