CR and the Creative Handbook have launched a new event for all art directors, designers, creative directors, art buyers and everyone involved in commissioning photography and illustration. Portfolios is free to attend and takes place on the 9 – 10 June at the Central Hall Westminster, London SW1

We know that it is often difficult to find time to see books: the idea of Portfolios is to bring together the work of leading illustrators and photographers in one place, with everyone from the freshest new talent to the established stars represented. We hope that Portfolios will prove to be the perfect place to find the photographer you need for that next cover or the ideal illustrator for your new campaign.

As part of our Portfolios programme, we are also hosting two exclusive events on the first day. At 5pm the internationally acclaimed illustrator and artist James Jarvis will be discussing his life and work. Then, at 6.30pm, we will be staging a tribute to the late, great art director Paul Arden with former colleagues and collaborators discussing life with Arden and what made this all-round creative genius such a significant figure.

These sessions cost just £10, visit www.portfolioshow.co.uk to book your place, spaces are limited.

In addition, there will be a programme of free seminars and workshops with a mixture of inspirational and practical content.

We hope to see you there. You can register for Portfolios here
