Your portfolio should showcase your best work to date.
Whether you are applying for first year Foundation or as a transfer student, all applicants to Emily Carr University must submit a portfolio online through SlideRoom as part of the admission process. A strong portfolio showcases your best and most recent work and reflects your interest in exploring and experimenting with different materials to express your ideas.
Your portfolio is a collection of work and ideas demonstrating the state of your creative development so be sure to include work that represents your creativity, knowledge, interests, and skills. There is no rigid formula for a good portfolio and it may take a variety of forms. The primary goal is to show us how you communicate ideas and make use of artistic research processes and materials.
