Portfolio Review Day 2015

Designed graphic of event on October 17 from 1 to 4 pm.

The NYU Tisch Department of Photography & Imaging is hosting our third annual portfolio review day for prospective undergraduate students. This event is produced in conjunction with the Tisch Open House on the same date. 

This event is specifically offered for prospective undergraduate freshman and transfer students to receive feedback on photography portfolios. Each participating student will receive an individual appointment to meet one-on-one with a Tisch representative for a 15 minute review.

Participants must RSVP to receive their individual review appointment. 

Participants must RSVP and receive a confirmation with their individual appointment in order to participate in this event. Only prospective students should RSVP. Parents and other guests are not required to RSVP.

Please bring 10 to 15 pieces of original work. You may bring up to 3 examples of non-photo based work (paintings, sketches, sculpture, etc.) If you wish to share your work digitally and don’t have a charged laptop or tablet you can bring, please let us know, and we will make a computer available for you.  

Please note: Portfolio Review Day is a part of NYU's Open House events and will not be linked to your admissions portfolio should you decide to apply to NYU.

For more information regarding our application process and portfolio requirements, visit: The DPI Admissions Page.

Prospective Tisch students are also required to complete the Common Application. For more information on the complete admissions process to New York University, visit the NYU Undergraduate Admissions Page.

Tips for Portfolio Reviews:

  1. Be on time. If you are late for your individual appointment, the time will not be made up.
  2. Don't feel pressured to present a finished product. Feel free to bring a varied selection of work, including pieces you're still deciding on. 
  3. Please do not exceed the 15 piece maximum. We have a strict time limit and additional images will overwhelm and hinder an in-depth discussion of your work. We welcome and encourage you to share a link to your personal website/blog if there is additional work you would like to share.
  4. We highly recommend attending the open house events hosted by the Tisch Admissions Office, but students may choose to only participate in the portfolio review.


The outcome of your portfolio review will in no way affect your future admissions process at NYU. This event is offered as an opportunity to receive feedback directly from our department representatives to help strengthen your portfolio presentation for any future purposes. Our formal admissions process is a team effort; no one faculty member has the power to determine a student's admittance.
