2021 Roundtable and First Glance Guidelines


You may only choose one session at registration.
 All roundtable and first glance sessions will take place on Saturday, June 26 at 3:30 pm. Only participants will be allowed into the sessions. These are for images or text only; if you would like feedback on a dummy, please sign up for a one-on-one consultation.

You will not choose your own faculty member; we will assign you to a table before the conference. Your table assignment will be emailed to you with the conference packet information between June 7th and June 11th.

Note: If you do not follow the directions your submission may be disqualified, so please read the instructions below carefully.

 


Illustrator Faculty First Glance Session 

Saturday only

Similar to our “Great Critiques,” this is your chance to receive feedback from a professional and your peers in a small group of six. Your work will be shared on screen and the faculty member will give their spontaneous feedback. If there is time, others in the group can make remarks, as well.

How to Submit: Illustrator First Glance Submission Instructions

You may only participate in one Illustrator First Glance group. First come, first served when you register. The session is limited to 18 total pre-registered participants, in groups of six. Contact Kara Frost at oregon-ic@scbwi.org with questions.
