Comic-Con@Home Virtual Portfolio Review

Calling all imaginative, experimental, and unpretentious artists! 

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this may be the year for someone (besides your friends and family) to critique your art. Since Comic-Con is virtual this year, we have an exciting opportunity for you! 

Some of our Industry Companies are conducting virtual portfolio review sessions. If you have attended Portfolio Review sessions at previous Comic-Cons, you know there was a strict procedure to follow each morning, which along with other steps involved getting in a line. Guess what? With Comic-Con@Home, there is no lining up this year. You can submit your portfolio from the comfort of your home.

Please closely read the information and directions provided by each Company as to how to submit your portfolio. Remember, there is no guarantee that a Company will reach out to you to schedule a virtual portfolio review session.
