Application to become a Fellow (FSIAD) is by submission of an Application Form, a portfolio (sent as digital files) of 20 examples of your current work (these must be different works to any previously submitted for your MSIAD application), a copy of your CV, and a Written Statement (of around 1000 words) describing your professional practice and aspirations for continued professional development. Details of how to send your FSIAD electronic portfolio, CV and Written Statement are provided on the application form.  Your digital files will be used to showcase your work on the SIAD website.

Application to become a Fellow costs £40 (€45 / US$50).  When your Fellowship is confirmed, you will be sent (by post) your Fellowship Certificate.  You will then be entitled to use the letters FSIAD after your name with immediate effect.
