Portfolio should show the breadth and versatility of an entrant’s work and should demonstrate skill in a variety of categories including politics. We will ask the judges to select the best “body of work.” Portfolio must contain a minimum of 22 pictures and a maximum of 45 pictures. You must have at least one picture story and a maximum of three picture stories. Also, a portfolio must contain at least three entries from a political category: Presidential, On Capitol Hill, Insider’s Washington, or Picture Story/Politics (which counts as a single entry). A black slide is required to separate picture stories as well as single entries. New this year: a portfolio must now contain at least three entries from a political category.
