Perhaps you've always wondered how to add a project to ARCHITECT Magazine's Project Gallery. Or maybe you're just looking to get more exposure for your firm's work. Either way, you've come to the right place! Read on to learn how to submit your portfolio online in five easy steps.
Step One: Sign up!
If you haven’t already, you should register with our site. There's a register button in the top right corner of the website, or simply
click here to register. Once you've registered, you can stay current by signing up for daily architectural news updates, and add as many projects as you like. You can sign up as an individual, or on behalf of your firm. After you've registered, you'll be able to start adding projects.
Step Two: Add a Project
Go to the “Projects” tab and click “Add a Project” on the dropdown list, which will take you to a form you can fill out about your project. You'll want to have all of your information on collaborators (e.g., structural engineers, acoustics consultants, etc.) ready to give appropriate credit to members of the project team. If you have a project narrative or description, there's a field for that, too. And feel free to tag your project with relevant tags to make it easier to find for other users.
Step Three: Add Images
Once you've filled in the basic information on your project, it's time to bring it to life with images. These can be renderings, sketches, construction shots, and/or final photography. All images must be RGB format for web, less than 10 MB each, and in .jpg, .gif, or .png format. You may add up to 30 images at a time. When you're adding images, you'll see fields for image credit and caption - please be sure to attribute all images properly.
Step Four: Add Products
Did you use an awesome new material on your project? You can add that to your project as well, in the section beneath the project images. By linking Products to your Project, other users can see how materials can be used in exciting ways. And don't forget, after you've saved your project, you can always come back to it later to add new images, products, or other information.
Step Five: Share your Project
Once you share your work on our website, sharing on other sites is just a click away. We can help you post to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. Still have questions? Visit our FAQ page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
