As many of you know, I run the Prompt Party account over on instagram. It’s a year old as of last month! It started out as weekly prompts, but a week isn’t always enough time to do portfolio-ready work, especially if you’re busy. It was always my intention to create something that you can jump in and out of from week to week, but after running a poll in my instagram stories, it seems that what’s best for people is fewer, more thoughtful assignments.
If you’re reading this, you probably know that I was one of the winners of the Lilla Rogers Studio 2018 Global Talent Search. My life has been an absolute whirlwind since then, but I thought I’d share my thoughts on the competition—what it was like to compete, and what it takes to win—while it’s still reasonably fresh in my mind.
