You will automatically be entered into the art prize when you create a new alumni portfolio page or update your existing portfolio page. All the details you need to know are below.
What is the alumni portfolio page?
It's where artists who studied at SmArt School and the IMC can have a portfolio page for free! To be eligible all you have to do is complete a SmArt School mentorship beyond the beginner level or have attended the IMC. We want to promote the artists who studied with us. We want you to succeed because the proof of the value of any school is in the success of the alumni.
