Crafting Characters Conference Portfolio Showcase

Hello illustrators!

Even though our region’s conference is virtual this year, we are still having a portfolio showcase so you can share your work with your peers and conference faculty!!!

We’re using Google Photos for the showcase.

Each illustrator will have their own galleries using a Google Photos album that photos can be uploaded to. These galleries will be accessed by viewers through a main landing page on the SCBWI Carolinas regional homepage.

Participants must have a Google account to participate. If you don’t have a Google account, we recommend creating one that you can use for this purpose.

Sign Up – It’s Free

Sign up by September 1st to participate in the showcase.

After signing up, you will receive an email with instructions for activating your gallery and uploading images.


Email inquiries no later than September 17th to:
Ashley Belote
Carolinas Illustrator Coordinator

The last day to upload images to your portfolio is September 24th. After that, no additional changes can be made to your portfolio.

Opens Thursday, October 8th at 9 p.m.
The portfolio showcase will open to conference faculty and attendees in conjunction with the opening Keynote of our 2020 Crafting Characters Conference.

Closes Monday, November 9th at midnight
The portfolio showcase will close in conjunction with our closing Keynote of our 2020 Crafting Character Conference.

We honor your courage, creativity, and commitment to adapting with us during this uneasy time.

We can’t wait to see your work and celebrate the success of the creativity among our talented region.
