Portfolio presentation guidelines

Some top tips on creating your Bloom entry portfolio – showcase your action-packed growing year

Portfolio submissions

Finalists’ portfolios are not a compulsory requirement of the Bloom process, but are highly recommended as a way to support your entry and give the judges insight into your campaign before they arrive.

The portfolios themselves will not be marked but their contents can be used to demonstrate how you've met the marking criteria throughout the year and cover items that you can’t showcase on judging day.

It's up to you whether to show evidence of your achievements on the tour, in your presentation or in the portfolio, but keep in mind that content evidenced in any of these aspects can contribute towards marks.
