Scholarship application requirements (Digital Portfolio)

To apply for the Game Design Scholarship, you must submit 2-3 samples of your creative or artistic work in digital format that might relate broadly or specifically to game design. These allow students who are creatively excellent but may not have achieved equally high standards or grades in their traditional academic school subjects to present their creative works.

Your Digital Portfolio should be carefully assembled and focused in such a way as to tell us who you are and to demonstrate – through your work - your passion for game design. It should not be a collection of unrelated works, and the emphasis should be on quality rather than quantity.

Your Digital Portfolio may include some of the following:

  • Synopsis of a game that you are passionate about creating (including the concept, idea, genre, and relevant drawings/designs etc.);
  • Drawings, sketches or graphic design;
  • Video, animation or motion work;
  • Interactive work (i.e. websites, apps, games);
  • Any other example of your chosen creative works in digital format.

Most importantly, your Digital Portfolio should be structured and/or narrated to explain the work you are showing. It should have a table of contents with a brief description of each piece that you are submitting. Ultimately, your digital portfolio should portray you, and your creative accomplishments, as worthy of an RMIT scholarship for creative excellence.

Format: The Digital Portfolio will consist of either a video file (max 3 minutes) or other digital files (portfolio size of no more than 30 MB). It must contain a title page (Digital Creative Portfolio) & clearly include your name, and a table of contents. Your Digital Creative Portfolio should be uploaded to an online platform (such as Vimeo, YouTube) or any other online repository (Google Drive, etc.) and a link provided. Submissions will not be accepted in any other way than online.

Note: All portfolio work must be original and created by the candidate.
