Announcing Portfolio Review Week #6: November 3-10, 2014


Portfolio Review Week #6: November 3-10, 2014

We first launched Portfolio Review Week in 2012 with the goal of bringing together creatives to share their work and develop their craft. In the five Portfolio Reviews since then, we’ve been amazed by the stories, photos, and videos of creatives coming together in their communities across 80 countries.

Portfolio Review Week #6 will be held November 3-10, 2014. We’re looking forward to a week of incredible events put together by first time and veteran hosts worldwide!

Portfolio Review Week #5 Superlatives & Stats

One of our favorite things about Portfolio Review Week is seeing the incredibly unique pictures that come out of these global events. We have seen some amazing things, from Behance cupcakes, to live paintings, to homemade photobooth props; our hosts and attendees can get super creative! Because of this, we thought it would be a fun idea to create Portfolio Review #5 Superlatives.

The Dare to Share Remix Project

The upcoming Behance Portfolio Review Week is a pretty important one.  This May, we celebrate the fifth installment of PRW and we’re daring our community to share.  Showing and discussing your personal creative work can feel scary, but we feel it’s the key to building an amazing creative community.

To get the creative juices flowing, we’re daring our community to share their interpretation of our “Dare To Share” sticker.  We’ve been posting these all around, but we want to see what you’ve got.

Using the medium of your choice, incorporate Dare to Share into a Behance project.  Use your imagination and go crazy!  When you’re ready to share, tweet at @behanceteam and add #PRWdaretoshare.  We’ll be searching for those tweets and in the weeks leading up to May 12th, we’ll feature tweets, Facebook posts, and Instagrams of our favorites!

Keep on sharing!

Portfolio Review Week also just became even more exciting: this year, Reviews will feature speakers from each of the communities hosting Review events. We can’t wait to see what this fantastic community comes up with, and have no doubts that you will blow our minds once again!

Portfolio Review Week #5 is coming!

It feels like just yesterday that the Behance team debuted Portfolio Review Week in May 2012, so we can hardly believe that the 5th PRW is coming up this Spring.

Twice annually, Behance presents Portfolio Review Week, an unprecedented series of volunteer-organized events that has spread to hundreds of cities internationally, with a goal of bringing together creative professionals.

Our team has been hard at work preparing behind-the-scenes. Some changes this time around:

  • A brand new home for PRW!
  • Launch of speakers at all PRW events
  • New materials for our hosts in their kits, including Photobooth props, a more comprehensive Handbook, and more
  • Branding improvements from our design team

We can’t wait to launch PRW5 later this week! Stay tuned for news….
