As someone who had his portfolio reviewed at the last event (see the video above) I'd just like to say that the feedback was very insightful. If you're in two minds about signing up, I'd recommend doing so. It's an amazing event, hosted by the amazing people at the Van Alen Institute. And oh, get there early to check out the reading room and the exhibits!
