Guidelines for Reflections entries:
1. Sturdy mounting material was not used
for visual arts or photography entries.
A good rule of
thumb is “if you can bend it nearly in half,
roll it or fold it, it is not properly mounted.”
Foam core board, corrugated cardboard and thick
mat board are a few examples of acceptable
mounting materials (but not thicker than 3/8”).
Putting a mat around a visual arts or
photography entry is not proper mounting unless
it also has a sturdy board backing. Construction
paper and poster board are NOT acceptable
2. Visual arts and photography entries
cannot be thicker than 3/8”.
Nothing in a
frame, nor canvas on stretcher bars is accepted.
Sculpture of any kind is not accepted. Glass
items are not accepted due to potential
3. Literature entries should not be
mounted, laminated or bound.
The pages must be
loose in a manila file folder with entry form
attached to the outside of the folder. Word
count must be noted on the entry form. An
original and two copies are required to be
4. Dance Choreography and Film Production
entries must be saved AS A FILE on the DVD.
Do not submit as
a DVD movie. This means that when the DVD is
inserted in a computer, a window must come up
showing the files on the disc allowing the
viewer must click on the file to open it. If the
entry automatically starts when the DVD is
inserted in a computer, the entry has not been
saved as a file.
5. Check the DVDs and CDs before submitting them to make sure they work
and do not have a faulty sound.
