Guidelines & Technical Requirements
Strut Your Stuff will be presented online using Zoom. Familiarity with using a web camera is recommended. We may schedule a rehearsal to assist you with your presentation.
  • Lighting: We want to see your work. Make sure you are in a well-lit space.
  • Technology: You will need to have a webcam (via computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone).
  • The Art Work: The art work must be something you made. When registering we will ask you to complete details about the piece for our announcer.
  • Model: No experience needed. You will be modeling/showing your own work for the show. Have fun with it. Allow yourself space to twirl and show your piece from every angle.
  • Facilities: Your presentation should be able to be given from a space without interruptions (pets, children, television, etc.)
