Has anyone here has to submit a portfolio for school?

I am applying to get my Masters and I have never made a portfolio before, I Know what needs to be included but im not sure exactly what it needs to look like, organizational wise. I'm worried mine will come out looking too childish.

any suggestions?  Undecided

Please tell us what your major is, different areas of study require different types of porfolios.

I submitted a portfolio for undergrad (I will be attending The School of Art Institute of Chicago in the fall). Every school is different with their portfolio requirements (or lack of) but basically they just want to see your BEST portfolio quality work.  A typical portfolio contains about 10-15 slides.

I don't know if your portfolio has to be in slide or digital format but I reccommend doing both. It never hurts to have multiple copies of your portfolio (never send your only one)

Also be sure to include an inventory list of your pieces (title, size, media, etc..) and label your slides, you can do this yourself or have the place that develops your slides do it (don't but labels on them use a sharpie). If you don't have access to lights etc you can get digital photos made into slides but it does cost extra. One more thing...Its cheaper to take multiples of one piece than going back with your already made slides and getting them reprinted!

I organized my portfolio by series then date...I don't think it really matters just as long as it is organized and can be viewed with no problems.

my name is susie, nice to meet you.

I have never done a slide portfolio, but I have done a paper one and a powerpoint one.  When I first went to college, I had a paper portfolio.  I took pictures of all my work and put them in plastic protectors and put them all in a nice lether binder.  When I went to grad school, I put a portfolio together on powerpoint and then just burnt it to a cd.  Each slide was a different picture and I created a background out of a distorted image of one of my artworks.  Hope this helps, Good Luck!
