That’s Entertainment 2013 Recital DVD Cover Contest

To all current BDC Students:

Calling all artists…we are looking for a new recital DVD cover! Submit your work for a chance to have one of your creations featured as the 2013 That’s Entertainment recital DVD cover! Both drawings and digital designs accepted.
We are looking for current BDC students to participate in this competition (sorry parents), regardless of age.
What will the winning cover have?
1. Creativity. Make sure you show us your inner Michelangelo, whatever that may be.
2. Correct sizing. The design should be on an 8 X 11 piece of paper, not bigger, not smaller.
3. Theme. What does BDC mean to you? What do you like about BDC? Show us through your drawings/pictures.
4. Colour. Although our BDC blue is the best, don’t be afraid to use other colours.
Other than that, you are free to enter what you want. Remember that the DVD is a keepsake for students and their families, and a great way to reflect on the year.
Submission Requirements
Please make sure that all entries are submitted to a member of the BDC faculty no later than April 1, 2013. You can place your full name on the back of the paper, or paperclip a note to it. Please make sure that if you are using photographs, you have permission from the students in it and that they are somewhat recent. Don’t worry about putting a date or title, we will add that in after we pick a winner. Winner will be chosen by the BDC faculty and notified thereafter. Winner will receive a copy of the recital DVD (both Friday & Saturday) for FREE! Plus a few bragging rights, of course.
Best of luck to all who participate and we can’t wait to see the results!
