Portfolio Submission for 2015 Entry


BCGD applicants are required to submit an A3 portfolio containing ten pieces of their best work in art or design. We will not be evaluating your design abilities as these skills will be taught during the degree.  We are interested in seeing your creative ideas, originality, curiosity and imagination, and how you implement this within your creative visual work.

The portfolio selection should include examples of ideas and creative process as well as finished pieces such as:

  • Drawings
  • Computer Generated Images
  • Sketches
  • Photography
  • Websites
  • Animation
  • Painting
  • Sculpture
  • Fashion
  • Digital Story Telling
The portfolio can be in the form of digital files (pdf or jpeg), slides or photographs of work. Each of the ten pieces should be accompanied by a short (100 word max.) description of the work and its purpose and process of production.
