The Big Book Crit runs in partnership with the Graeme Robertson Trust, the IDM & DMA to help aspiring creatives looking to break into the creative sector. Attendees get the opportunity to have their portfolios critiqued by some of the country’s leading Creative Directors and network along the way; a handful of attendees have even been offered placements on the night!
The Big Book Crit will be returning this Spring 2018 for its 5th round at the following locations:
24 April - Bristol @ Prophecy
25 April - London @ DMA House
25 April - Edinburgh @ Union
26 April - Norwich @ Ideas Factory NUA
Booking forms will be released soon so keep your eyes peeled! In the meantime, you can read up on what happened at the last round of crits here.
How does it work?
Big Book Crit is completely free to attend.
The event is split into three sections: kicking off with a short topical talk, followed by individual book and portfolio critiques, and then finishing up with some time to have drinks and network. A mix of Creative Directors and other senior creatives will be on-hand to offer feedback on your work and advice on getting a job in the creative industry.

The event is open to students (at any stage of their course), recent grads that already have an existing book of work as well as anyone starting out in their career with work to be critiqued. Creative teams and individuals are both welcome. For any questions please email email@example.com
