One Club Deadline, Friday May 1, 2020


The One Club’s free global portfolio review

The positive response to The One Club Online Portfolio Review has been absolutely phenomenal, with nearly a thousand young creatives from around the world already registered to have their work critiqued. Couple this with several hundred creative professionals already volunteering to critique portfolios and offer advice, and the Online Portfolio Review is shaping up to be an incredible initiative in a time when the global pandemic has put so many young creatives’ aspirations on hold.
That said, there’s always room for more! If you’re a student or recent grad and haven’t yet uploaded your portfolio, or if you’re a creative professional looking to give back to the next generation of creatives throughout the month of May, you have until this Friday. May 1 to register.
The Online Portfolio Review is free of charge for all participants.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: MAY 1

FOR REVIEWERS & PROFESSIONALS
Break up the monotony of quarantine by paying it forward professionally! You’ll only be assigned as many portfolios as you’d like to take on, and you’ll have a few weeks to write a review of each person’s work. You’ll even have an opportunity to continue the conversation if you’d like to guide a young creative post-pandemic.
SIGN UP TO REVIEW PORTFOLIOS

FOR STUDENTS & RECENT GRADS
You’ve worked hard to get this far — don’t let a little thing like a worldwide lockdown get in the way of gaining feedback from the very creative professionals you hope to impress when things get better. Once you’ve uploaded your portfolio, it will be assigned to multiple creative professionals, in order to give you a broad scope of opinions of your work.
