The Great Portfolio Night Redo presented by Shutterstock

ADC is pleased to carry on the spirit of Portfolio Night together with Shutterstock. Introducing: the Great Portfolio Night Redo. This is your chance to take the advice you received at ADC Portfolio Night and put it into action — and maybe even win a creative director interview in the process!

We know that as students and juniors, you don’t always have the best images available to make your portfolio shine. That’s why Shutterstock — Global Sponsor of Portfolio Night and the people behind the napkin sketching contest in each Portfolio Night city — is giving you free access to beautiful high-resolution images to rework your book.

After you’ve used those images to kick your portfolio up several notches, you gotta show it so somebody, right? What if that somebody was Philippe Meunier, Creative Chief and Co-Founder of Sid Lee, the creative agency with clients such as Adidas, Absolute and Cirque du Soleil? All you have to do is submit one of your new and improved portfolio pieces, and you could win a one-on-one interview with Philippe — and he will definitely be interested in seeing what you’ve done with your Shutterstock images!
