Photography Program 2024 Audition Requirements

*You do not need any previous formal training in photography to apply- we are looking for creativity and a demonstration of an understanding of the principles and elements of art & design. In other words - what makes an interesting photo to look at.

Portfolios must be in a digital photograph format (either a Google Slide Presentation or PowerPoint Presentation). We will not accept a physical portfolio. Your portfolio should consist of 10 photographs (4 required pieces) plus a personal statement and a headshot.

We will be looking for understanding of principles and elements of design and creative thought process. Any portfolio that does not meet these basic requirements will be considered incomplete and therefore disqualified. Be considerate of your submissions, the quality of a piece is just as important as the quantity.

  • Include a recent headshot of yourself. This will help us connect the artist to the art work. 
  • Write a personal statement of 500 words or less describing your previous art/photography training and your personal interest in the fine arts or the goals that you hope to accomplish as a Photography student over the next four years. Include this statement with your digital portfolio.
