Digital Submission Process

Breaking it down


  • The web application requires you to upload 15 Sustained Investigation images and images of 5 Selected Works.



  • You can have 10 finished pieces to upload, and the remaining 5 images can be pictures of you in the process of creating your Sustained Investigation.


  • For AP 2-D Art and Design and AP Drawing, to proceed in the web application you’ll still need to check the boxes that say you’ll mail your physical work, including printed written evidence.


  • This is only a technical requirement.


  • You won’t mail a physical portfolio.


  1. After you submit your portfolio, you should sign back into the web application to check your portfolio status before the submission deadline.

  2. Although it’s rare, if your AP teacher sends your portfolio back to you for any reason, you’ll need to resubmit it before the deadline.

  3. Your portfolio must be in the following status at the time of the May 20, 11:59 p.m. ET deadline to be scored:


Forwarded to AP.

The AP website says May 20 by noon.

  1. 5/18 at noon is the time I am assigning to you.

  2. I need to ensure everything is PERFECT before I forward your portfolio to the Coordinator.

  3. IF there are any issues, this gives both of us time to fix issues before the deadline.


I must review your portfolio on a constant basis to make sure you are on the right track.

To review your portfolio you need to upload all of your completed artwork an to the AP Website.
