    I'm a sixth form student applying for photography courses at university and I have started on my portfolio for the application. What I am not sure about is how it should be presented. I know I should have a digital/online version, which I will be doing soon, but for the interviews, a physical version is required.

    - Should I be putting my photos in a sketchbook and using glue to stick them in?
    - How big should they be printed?
    - How much annotation will be needed?
    - Should I get them printed in a professional photo book?
    - Do I get a big photo album and slot the photos in the plastic sleeves?

    Also, I spoke to someone at Sheffield Hallam University at an open day. She told me she would like to see the photos that i'm most proud of/most successful etc, printed bigger.

    - Do I get those ones printed just as big photos? or do I get them printed onto a canvas/aluminium/acrylic etc?
    - How do i bring them in? A big plastic folder?

    Someone please give me some advice! My sixth form is pretty much useless with this stuff. Thanks!
