Submit to Scene Design Poster Sessions

Brian Ruggaber Scene Design & Technology Commission

The Scene Design & Technology Commission is looking for submissions for its' poster session to be held at USITT 2017 in Saint Louis, MO.

Submissions will be accepted Aug. 1 through Nov. 16. Submit at www.usittshow.org.

This is a great way to become more active and involved in USITT and to broaden a member’s participation. For a seasoned professional, it is also an excellent opportunity to share expertise; for academics, it’s a juried exhibit to help polish tenure files.

The adjudicators are looking for innovative solutions to scene design problems, the crafting of exciting props, the creation of new paint techniques, pioneering and exciting teaching methods, unusual and interesting ways to use products, and the application of old technologies to solve new problems or new techniques to solve old problems. For all intents and purposes, anything created, discovered, or crafted that a scene designer is proud of is suitable for this session and provides an opportunity to share with peers.

A project abstract and bio are part of the submission. Abstracts should include a concise but detailed description of the project in 200 words or less. One additional visual element may be attached, no larger than 650KB, to help clarify the proposal. Acceptable file formats include: doc, docx, pdf, and jpg formatted with last name in the filename; for example, lastname2017postersession.doc. All files will be renamed to ensure anonymity during the blind jury process.

Questions should be submitted to Chair Brian Ruggaber at ruggaberdesign@gmail.com.

USITT members who are selected will receive a presenter ribbon on their conference badges. This also may fulfill a member’s need to present at a conference to receive travel funds. Following the session, posters will remain on display for the remainder of the conference, and some outstanding posters may be published in TD&T.
