RECAP: Portfolio Review 2022

AAF Buffalo hosted its third-annual Portfolio Review event on April 22nd. Students had the opportunity to present their best pieces to the brightest advertising pros in Buffalo. The review gives students real-life practice at pitching their design campaign ideas to a panel along with invaluable feedback to take their work to the next level. 

This year, two sessions were held to give students ample time to present their work and receive expert feedback. Each participant had a 10-minute slot to present their portfolio in a breakout room with two other students and a panel of professionals from local Buffalo agencies. Each panel had someone from a large agency, a small studio agency, and a freelancer. This provided well-rounded feedback from different perspectives for each participant.

After both sessions of the Portfolio Review, the professionals on the panels nominated one student that they felt excelled in the review to receive a $300 scholarship. One student from each session was selected to win the scholarship, totaling $600 in scholarships awarded.

Please join us in congratulating the following students:
