The Digital Media Arts department is pleased to announce a competition for scholarships to Portfolio 1-on-1, an annual student mini-conference produced by AIGA Minnesota. Share your work with design industry professionals, make new connections, and get valuable feedback and advice on becoming a stronger candidate for internships and jobs within the creative fields.
This year’s event takes place on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, from 9am-6pm at Muse Event Center (downtown Minneapolis).
More details on the event are available at AIGA’s website:
“Before you start applying to jobs get a gut-check from experienced creative professionals at Portfolio 1-on-1. This design-centric conference will give you the opportunity to present your work in mock interviews for constructive feedback and valuable connections. You’ll also have the opportunity to tour agencies and studios, hear from panelists, attend hands-on workshops, and network with other students.”
DMA faculty will review all applications and select scholarship recipients. Up to three scholarships may be awarded. Scholarship covers one free year of AIGA membership ($50 value) and $75 Portfolio 1-on-1 registration fee; students are responsible for registering and for transportation to/from event.
Open to all DMA majors, but the event will be most applicable to those with portfolios focused on graphic design, web design, animation, and/or illustration.
