About our monthly Portfolio Masterclasses
Portfolio Masterclasses are a rare opportunity to chat to senior creatives directly about your projects and ideas. It's a little like speed dating, but in groups of creatives with portfolios!
Often, mentors are on the lookout for new minds to join their teams – in the past, attendees have gained internships, full-time roles and freelance work for big names such as Pentagram, WIRED, Adidas, M&C Saatchi, Warner Music & Google.

Mentor lineup
Mentors to be announced shortly. Previous mentors have been from brands including Rankin, adidas, VICE, Soho House, Nowness, BBC, Nike, Monocle, Dazed, Riposte, Refinery 29, The Guardian, Vogue, Burberry and many more.

Who are these events for?
Anybody already in the industry, studying or looking for a career move – all are welcome.
Applications are free.
We always look to invite a diverse group of people with ambition and ideas.
There's no minimum experience required.

How to apply to join the masterclass
Applications are now closed. Head here for upcoming events.
After the deadline, 30 applicants will be invited to join the event. We're after a diverse group of people with ambition and big ideas.
Your Dots profile is used as your application - so make sure to have at least 1 project on your profile (although more is preferable, so we can see your great work!)
Projects can be in any medium (inc videos, hypothetical briefs, uni projects and so on).
Ideas and works-in-progress are fine too – we just need to learn a little about you and what you do!
If you are selected to join the masterclass, you will be sent an email the week before the event with further information and a ticket link.
For the 30 successful attendees, tickets cost £5-8 to ensure attendance (we can help out if money is a blocker).
