I am going to be linking my FMP with The Macmillan Prize. I will be working to the brief in the set way and delivering the required rough pencil sketches, cover-to-cover including text and finished artwork for at least two double page spreads or three spreads and a front cover. The given length will be 32 pages long, I am yet to decide in the experimentation process if I will be including flaps or fold out pages.
I thought that basing my amp around this brief would give me a good idea of how to work to a set professional brief, including time management, as well as how to submit my work and also what to consider when looking for work outside of university. I will possibly then enter the competition depending on my time and this will determine whether my work will be ready to be submitted or if I will just be using it for the FMP alone. I am going to aim to get as much work finished as I can so that I could possible have a change at entering the competition. This would be a good way of getting my work noticed, and also a way of creating work that I want to be doing in the future and from this I think that I would learn a lot about professional time keeping, deadlines and final deliverables.
