Competition was tough this year with over 50 portfolio submissions to 2015 Portfolio 1-on-1®. Our judges had a lot of page flipping and reviewing to do, but ultimately chose the most-prepared books. We thank our generous scholarship providers for their support of AIGA Minnesota Portfolio 1-on-1 and we congratulate this year’s winners.
