The deadline for you to complete your portfolio for consideration for a 2018 Baker Artist Award is Thursday, December 21st at 5:00PM. This section contains important information and tips for you to consider before the deadline. Please read this message in its entirety.
1) Deadline process: Unlike previous years, the new website will NOT lock you out at the deadline. Instead, a cloned copy of your portfolio will be made at 5:00PM on Thursday 12/21. This means that you can continue to work on your public portfolio 365 days a year, but whatever state your portfolio is in at deadline time will be frozen in time and reviewed by the judges.
Please note: Even if your portfolio is set to "hidden from public view", your portfolio will be adjudicated. If you do not wish to have your portfolio live or judged, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Work Samples: Artists working in all disciplines other than Visual Arts are required to submit up to four work samples. Work samples can be added at the very top of your "Edit Portfolio" page. Up to four Work Samples of varying length may be submitted but must not exceed a limit of ten minutes or 15 pages in total. [For example; (5) two minute samples, or (1) ten minute sample OR (3) five page samples, or (1) 15 page sample, etc. Additional instructions can be found on the "Help" page. If your Work Sample exceeds the limit, we guarantee that judges will review the first 10 minutes or 15 pages of your work included in this section. Visual Artists are also encouraged to submit Work Samples, though this will not affect adjudication.
3) Site-wide Thumbnail Image: This image will be the image that is representative of your portfolio throughout the Baker site. To set this image, click "Edit Account Info" then click "Artist Profile" at the top. Scroll down to the 3rd option that reads, "Site-wide Thumbnail Image" and upload an image.
4) Background Image: To set the background of your portfolio, click "Edit Portfolio" and scroll to the last option, "Background Image" to change this image. This can be a representational image of your work, a solid color, pattern, etc.
