Pointers When Entering Breakthrough, 2013 edition

www.richardsolomon.com/breakthrough

When you enter a contest, whether it be for our Breakthrough Contest, or the myriad of other illustration competitions out there, it is very important that you present yourself in the most optimal way possible.

Some contests judge images individually and specific illustrations (vs specific illustrators) are chosen for awards and features. In this case, it is not as important to present a portfolio as whole and you might even opt to send only one image.

In other contests, it is the illustrator that is chosen to receive an award. This means that a complete and consistent portfolio comprised of only the best images you have is key to getting noticed. This is certainly the case with our Breakthrough Contest. We want to make sure that you put your best foot forward. It would certainly be very upsetting if your portfolio was dismissed because of an error like wrong file type, poor image quality, or an misrepresenting set of images.

Here are some pointers about how to maximize your potential to win any contest:

 
So, now you have your images, they are in the proper format, and represent you in the best way possible. If you are still having technical problems, you can always contact the company in charge of the contest for help. In our case, feel free to email us and we will get back to you asap.
