If you want to find a steady job as a game artist with companies in the games industry or acquire jobs as a freelancer, you need a convincing portfolio. But what exactly defines a good portfolio? Usually, the review of portfolios takes place behind closed doors. In many cases, applicants do not receive any helpful feedback after the review. Not so at our Portfolio Slam event! Here, you will have the opportunity to learn what experts look for in a portfolio review by presenting it to an expert jury and getting constructive feedback right on the spot.
Of course, the audience can also take away a few things: You will see three inspiring portfolios from our slammers, you can cheer them on and help decide who will advance to the next round, and you will learn more about what belongs in a convincing game art portfolio from the feedback of the jury! In addition, our sponsor InnoGames will give you the chance to get feedback for your own portfolio off stage: Frank Härtenhoff will be on hand as an experienced game artist to give you individual feedback on how to improve your own portfolios.
And after the slam, you can make valuable contacts with companies and other game artists, meet more people from Hamburg's games industry and enjoy a cool drink at the networking afterwards.
Our expert jury:
- Marcela Versiani, Lead Artist at Bigpoint
- Stefan Wacker, Senior 3D Artist at YAGER
- Reiko Groß, Art Director at InnoGames
