Although I currently have all of my articles and photos from my high school newspaper assembled in a portfolio of sorts I was planing on reorganizing my material to submit along with a scholarship application for sports journalism. The scholarship doesn't ask for any material but I emailed an admissions rep and they said they would welcome the portfolio.
My question was how should I format the portfolio to make it appear as professional as possible without taking up a large amount of space in an envelope? I currently just had the paper clippings but I could possibly access the original pdfs and print them out scaled smaller, although the text would be harder to read. Should I include info such as the date and issue number and if so is handwriting it acceptable or should I type up the information?
If you had any other tips for organizing the portfolio that would be great, thanks!
