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 entry must contain at least three entries that are also entered in political categories: Presidential, Insiders Washington, On Capitol Hill and Picture Story/Politics (which counts as a single entry). A black slide is required to separate picture stories as well as single entries.
