Reasons you should take part in the Portfolio Reviews

Some of the no brainer reasons you should be taking part in “First Impressions – CAPIC Vancouver’s 5th Portfolio Speed Review.

You save on the costs of parking in downtown Vancouver. At $4-$8hr that save you at very least $100 in parking fees alone.

You get to meet more of the top art directors and designers in one room wanting to see your work than anywhere else in town.

Close to one out of two of the participants will win a door prize, one that is worth as much as 10 times your ticket.

You get to make graffiti and won’t get arrested for doing so!

You will save making upwards of 100 phone calls to make and rebook and cancel at least 1/2 of the appointments you booked.

There is more than just work involved this year, you get to socialize with your peers and the creative community to share your first impressions for free if you register.
