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.

One of our favorite things about the Portfolio Review process is being able to see pictures of all the amazing events hosted around the world! Behance Reviews host’s never cease to amaze us, and Portfolio Review Week #5 is no exception awesome events on our Flickr and Pinterest pages for proof.
We also wanted to share some of the incredible recap videos some of our reviewers have created to show case their events. These are only some of the amazing event recaps created by our hosts; we’ll be adding more in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back!

We’re so excited to announce that sign-up’s for Portfolio Review Week #5 are officially open! Last November, we had over 320 Reviews in 77 countries– a really incredibly turn out. As usual, the events blew us away (you can check them out here, on our Flickr page)
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!

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….
