    LCC emailed me today asking me to send them over a Flickr link/mini online portfolio with 10 images but I have no idea what to put in it. The email says both my online portfolio and physical portfolio has to include images and evidence of research but I don't know how to fit both images and scans of my research books in just 10 images!

    Just wondered if anyone had any guidance on what to put in it or how to structure it!

    Having the same problem with the online portfolio. I hope it is just the 10 images.
    Did you manage to get any more information?

    Nope I didnt, I was advised by my college tutor to put 10 images in, and then add on planning pages and dont class them under the 10, apart from that I have no idea!

    I just replied to the email we got, and 'leah' responded saying that we submit 10 images with a sample of written work online, then we bring the research/planning pages to the interview along with the 20. They're a bit unspecific about it all. how do you get your written work to be in the same link as the pictures?

    Right okay that makes sense, I'm unsure I didn't think it was possible to upload a word document to Flickr? Maybe scan in the written work, and upload the scans of it, I think that's what I'll do

    Yeah it isn't possible to do that. I've got typed up work. But I think I'm going to use a dropbox link for it all. Is there a deadline?

    I emailed them a few days ago asking, they said there's no official deadline but submit it in the next few weeks

    Applied a couple of days before the ucas deadline and they haven't even asked me for a portfolio yet! When I applied to photojournalism last year it was just 15 images

    It took about 3 weeks for them to reply to me and I applied mid December, they probably have so many applications to work through so I wouldn't worry!!

    I hope so! Facilities are amazing! Gave up the opportunity to go last year because of money problems but decided that I'd rather be happy in London!

    I went to an open day and completely fell in love with it but I'm so nervous as they have so many applicants but not a lot of spaces

    I'm doing a foundation year at the moment and I think I'm predicted a distinction, not entirely sure the college I'm at at the moment isn't very useful

    Photography this year, want to go back to broader based stuff. I do a lot of conceptual stuff that doesn't really fit with photojournalism

    It's a great degree for some people but it just ended up sucking my creativity out of me! My last few photo sets haven't been useable for my course so I just decided reapplying somewhere else would reap better results
