Calling all visual communicators, creatives, idea makers, designers (of all sorts!) and storytellers, this one is for you. We're looking for 30 passionate, diverse and talented folk to join us at this Portfolio Masterclass at Google.

We are interested in hearing from people who are innovative and use their skills to tell stories. Whether you want to kickstart your career, show your ideas or step up to a fresh new position, this masterclass could be your stepping stone.
Apply here before Monday 22nd October at 10am
This event is proudly supported by our friends at Shutterstock & MOO.
Monday 29 October, 6:30pm-9pm, Google, WC2, London.
This event will allow you to meet and connect with industry leaders, discuss projects, ideas and network with like-minded folk. It's like speed dating, but in groups and with portfolios!
This is a rare opportunity to chat to senior creatives directly, and a chance to get your foot in the door: industry mentors are often on the lookout for new minds to join their teams. Past masterclass attendees have gained internships, full-time positions and freelance work at companies such as Warner Music, Pentagram, Adidas, M&C Saatchi and Google.
