Instructions for Posting your Portfolio online (more about this topic)
Once you have become a member of the ISC, you may submit materials for your portfolio page. To expedite the Portfolio process, please follow these instructions carefully:

Step 1: Create a Portfolio account

Using our online login form, click "Create New Account" to enter your e-mail address, member number, zip code (where your magazine is mailed) and create your password. The system will check the status of your membership. If you are current, you will be directed to the 'Member Home' page where you can chose to view Opportunities or Create/Edit a Portfolio. You will be able to use this login information to edit your listing whenever you wish.

Step 2: Register your Portfolio

After you are logged in, chose Create/Edit Portfolio and select 'Sculptor' from the dropdown and add the information you would like to include on your portfolio. The registration form has fields for all of your contact information, as well as a "long bio" section which you are free to use for your resume, CV, biography, or artist statement. When you are finished adding your information, click 'Agree to Terms' and hit submit. You will be directed to your 'Portfolio Home' page where you can add images. If you have any questions on how to complete the registration form, please email portfolio@sculpture.org.

Step 3: Upload your images

After you have filled out the registration form, you may add images of your work by logging into your account and using the "add new sculpture" link. Fill out the title, scale, medium, and date of your piece. Save the sculpture when you have finished adding this information. You will then be asked to upload the image of the work.

Image requirements:
1) Images should be formatted as
jpegs.
1) The Portfolio database will only accept images under 65k in size. Learn how to resize your images here.
2) Digital Images should be 72 pixels/inch with image size not exceeding 450-500 pixels in width or height.
3) Images will not be enlarged, as this will degrade their quality.
4) Images that are very tall and thin or very long and narrow may need to be cropped by the ISC.


Change or update an existing portfolio (more about this topic)
You may update or change the text on your Portfolio at any time by logging in with your e-mail address and password.

Each time you renew your membership, you are allowed to change or add two sculptures free of charge (up to a maximum of 20 images).

Additional images beyond those included in your membership can be purchased here at a cost of $15 per image. Added or changed images will need to be approved by the ISC before they can be displayed on your Portfolio page.


Portfolio Approval (more about this topic)

After submitting your online registration, the ISC needs to approve your Portfolio before it will be added to our website. We resize your images to fit the Portfolio format, and this process may take a few weeks. When we have approved your Portfolio, you will receive an e-mail from the ISC with a link to your finished page.

Portfolio applications that have not been completed after three months will be deleted. For space reasons, we will have to remove any unfinished Portfolio applications.

The ISC reserves the right to decline to post materials that are deemed inappropriate or factually incorrect.
