2017 AIGA Jacksonville Portfolio Review—Call for Reviewers

There's No Review Without You

Welcome, esteemed reviewer, to the 28th Annual AIGA Jacksonville Student Portfolio Review, taking place this year at University of North Florida. Thank you for volunteering your Saturday to help recent and soon-to-be graduates polish their portfolios before heading out into the wild blue yonder of job-hunting. You have the option to review during the morning or afternoon sessions, or stay all day to review. (Reviews will begin at 10 a.m. and continue until approximately 3:30 p.m. At that time, the judged competition will begin, which is a separate event from the review.) We'll keep you fueled up with coffee, lunch and snacks while you keep the feedback coming.

Upon registering, students categorize their portfolio as print, digital or hybrid, and during the review we attempt to match them up with reviewers relevant to their interests or specialties. You may select what portfolio format you're most comfortable reviewing.

Please keep in mind, these reviews are to help students improve their work. The goal is to offer constructive critiques as we mold the bright, young future stars of design in Jacksonville. Reviewers need a minimum of two years' experience in the design field.
