Here at Arts Award Voice we like to make a big deal about the work you post from your own Arts Award! You can upload your own blogs, vlogs, reviews and interviews here d so that your work can be read or viewed by other people doing their Awards. That way, we all help each other out.
The great thing about using Voice to host your portfolio is that it immediately counts as sharing your work with an audience. People from across the Voice community can read your reviews and blogs and comment their feedback on your pieces so that also counts towards your portfolio! Clever innit?
Here are some ways to get involved and share your Arts Award with Voice:
Build your Arts Award portfolio collection
Arts Award on Voice has lots of tools to help you create your Arts Award portfolio. You can share your blogs, reviews, videos or interviews, find out about events and opportunities and get feedback on your ideas.
You can write a review of any arts activity, film releases, books, art exhibitions, video games, you name it! A good review is around 200-400 words, or, if you feel really fancy, you could try a video review.
Here are some how-to-guides about writing a good review:
- The Voice team regularly post reviews, including covering the bigger arts festivals. If you're interested in reviewing for Voice, please contact us. We run a local reporters programme for reviewing in your area and a yearly national reporters programme for upcoming writers and journalists.
Write blogs and vlogs
Blogs are opinion pieces. They can be about something that you've done or something that is happening in the art world. If you want to write about a big arts issue, this is the place.
