Our mission is to bring together students who aspire to study visual art, design, architecture and related arts with representatives and faculty from the top art and design colleges and universities in the world.
Our vision is to break down geographical and cultural boundaries and facilitate deep and meaningful discussions of student art and design portfolios: to discuss work created, skills developed and goals for future exploration and study.
Preview serves the students at secondary and post-secondary institutions worldwide who aspire to study visual art, design and related arts, and who do not want to be limited by national boundaries.
Preview forums enable students to meet with officials from many art institutions and learn about the different program offerings, and scholarship opportunities available to them across the globe.
By bringing together students with similar interests in the arts from key cities and regions in the world, Preview provides an efficient recruitment platform for top art and design colleges.
Preview forums and associated mini-fairs are designed to reduce the pressures on the faculty and staff of schools and colleges trying to accommodate the many colleges visiting during the year.
Preview forums are endorsed by the National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) and are free and open to the public. International Portfolio Review Forum LLC is not an agency and will never charge students and/or their families a fee for attending Preview forums.
