An internship is an opportunity for students to work in their chosen profession while attending school in order to gain valuable knowledge and work experience.



Most often, interns are not paid for the work they do monetarily, but are instead rewarded by the sharing of knowledge, ideas, opportunities for their portfolio, networks and possibly a permanent job offer if the intern takes advantage of the opportunity to be a valuable employee.
Students in the Valencia Graphics Department are required to take an internship. Students cannot take an internship until they have passed GRA2182C Advanced Graphic Design II OR GRA2143 Advanced Web Page Design with a C or higher. Students probably won’t qualify for a Graphics Internship until their final two semesters enrolled.

You will not be able to register for an internship without following the steps outlined on our blog:

GRAPHICS STUDENT JURIED SHOW CALL FOR ENTRIES DETAILS!

{THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT WORK IS FRIDAY MARCH 28TH BY 5PM!!}

GRAPHICS Student Submission Guidelines (NOTE: The below outlines submission criteria for work done for Graphics courses only. The guidelines for submitting work completed in ART courses is different than what is on this posting for GRA courses and different than criteria set in past years. Please stop by the Fine Art Dept. in Building 3-115 for submission guidelines for work completed in ART courses – e.g. ART1300C.)

Work Eligible: Any work produced in conjunction within a Valencia Graphics class (any course with a GRA or DIG prefix) from Summer session 2013 through Spring session 2014. Students may enter up to 2 pieces from each class taken during that time. Graphics students no longer need to finish their accepted work with plexiglass or framing, so please make sure the work you submit is clean and professional enough to display in the gallery AS IS before submitting it for judging!

Presentation of Submitted Work:

  • Flat graphics work: needs to be professionally mounted onto black mat board for judging and presented in a way that isn’t sloppy or unprofessional. You will want to keep the board to a reasonable size so it is not too floppy to hang or does not warp while hung for several weeks. Posters larger than 11 x 17 do NOT need to be mounted. NOTE: Accepted work will be hung on the gallery walls AS SUBMITTED!
  • 3D work (such as package design, books, etc.): should be submitted in their finished 3D form and delivered in a container (like a box) to protect the contents from wear and tear that might occur while the work is in transit for judging and/or gallery setup. NOTE: Accepted work will be displayed in the gallery AS SUBMITTED! Generally 3D work is displayed on a pedestal, so you will want your work to look good from all sides/angles. You may also choose to submit a professional photograph of your 3D work, however, keep in mind the quality of the photograph will be important in the judging process.
  • Interactive/web projects: should all be burned onto a single labelled CD/DVD and files/folders should be clearly named so they match those on the submission forms. An entry form for EACH project on the disk needs to be filled out and all entry forms attached to the disk. NOTE: Accepted work will presented on a computer in the gallery AS SUBMITTED!

Work Delivery Deadline for Judging: Friday, March 28th (no later than 5pm) to our EAST Campus Graphics Lab in 1-213. You may also drop off your work in the WEST Campus Graphics Lab in 5-130, however; you must drop off your work at that location by THURSDAY, March 27th by 3pm. Each entry MUST have a completed entry form (including ALL of the colored copies) taped to the back in the lower right hand corner. Entry forms can be obtained in the East Graphics area in 1-213 (or in the West Campus Graphics lab in 5-130) or in the East Campus Fine Arts area in 3-115.

All accepted work will be taken to the gallery directly from the Graphics judging area by Friday, April 4th. If you need to improve the presentation of your accepted work before it is submitted to the gallery the deadline to get your accepted work better prepared for display in the gallery and re-submitted to the Graphics Lab (1-213) is Friday, April 4th.
