There's nothing like presenting your work after 2 nights of partying hard but that didn't slow anyone down at today's Northeast District Conference portfolio review. This year saw the addition of a separate area for Research Portfolio's, an increasingly important category touched on few times during the conference.
A question that came up a several times over the weekend was, "how do I get my work on Core77?". We love submissions, we can't promise you'll be published but you've got nothing to lose. Of course your chance will be greatly improved if your idea is awesome! (kidding). You will however have a much better prospect if you send your project in with a short summary explaining what makes it special, up to 5 web-ready images attached and a link to your site or project detail page. Make sure you write the text in the email body and please don't attach pdf, word and powerpoint files, this is just one more barrier to being considered and when you receive the volume of stuff we do on a daily basis, you'd appreciate how much clarity will help your case. Check out last year's Hack-2-School guide for more tips from some fellow design blogs.
