As the primary part of the entrance-to-major application process, all Current PSU Students create an online portfolio at Flickr.

Consider visual, conceptual, and technical proficiency in selecting your best, most recent work. See the slideshow below for tips on producing high quality portfolio photos.



Still images should be high quality .jpg format and a minimum of 1000 pixels in the longest direction. Images can include representations of various media including drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, designs, sculpture, jewelry/metalwork, ceramics, video screen-captures, etc. Time-based works, large-scale installations and videos may be submitted via a video file not to exceed 90 seconds in length or 500 MB size per clip.
