Registration opens this morning for a fun panel I'm moderating at the upcoming NESCBWI Regional Conference:
First Look: Your Single Best Piece Critiqued
Date: Saturday, May 4, 2013
Time: 2:00 p.m. - 2:55 p.m.
Place: Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place, Springfield, MA
Fee: Included with Saturday's Conference registration
Ever wonder what that art director thinks when your promotional postcard crosses their desk? Watch as an experienced panel of industry professionals share their first impressions of artwork submitted by conference attendees. All submissions are kept anonymous, so you can secretly take in compliments, constructive criticism, and see how your single best piece stacks up against your peers' in a theatre-style critique setting. Panel moderated by Christina Rodriguez.
Participants will walk away from the event with:
- A beneficial peek at the work of other illustrators, including their artistic triumphs and mistakes.
- Insight from a panel of professionals in the industry as they quickly critique a range of styles and illustrations.
- Image format: JPG
- Resolution: 150dpi
- Maximum image size: 1 MB
- Artist's name is to appear NOWHERE on the artwork.
- Deadline for all images: April 17, 2013
The images will be compiled into a randomized slideshow to be displayed in front of the panel and audience. Each image will get between 1-3 minutes of critique by the panel (as time & number of entries permit), and I will be auditing for time and guiding discussion as needed.
