Portfolio skatei var pieteikties dalībnieki no visām valstīm, bez vecuma ierobežojuma, līdz 2019. gada 20. martam. Lai piedalītos skatē dalībniekam ir jāsagatavo prezentējams portfolio (1-3 darbu sērijas) drukātā vai elektroniskā formā. Dalības maksa līdz 1. martam ir 70 EUR (studentiem – 40 EUR), pēc 1. marta 80 EUR (studentiem – 50 EUR).
