Editors’ Day is open to all students at any SCAD campuses (including eLearning), and alumni. Students must apply for portfolio reviews, which will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications are available in an interactive PDF on SEQALab.com, and students must submit samples from their portfolio. Alumni, Atlanta campus and eLearning students can email applications with portfolio samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. Although graduating students and alumni have priority, all student levels are welcome, and every effort will be made to assign students to an editor or publisher, based on availability.
SCAD Editors’ Day has been a proud part of the history of the sequential art department for many years. The event represents one of the few major academic acknowledgements of comic art and sequential art storytelling in the nation.
