Plan now to apply for USITT's 2005 Awards for Young Designers & Technicians in the Performing Arts.
The deadline for this year has been moved to an earlier date, October 12, 2004, so now is the time to begin work on your portfolio. New this year is an application fee of $25 to help cover the cost of administering and adjudicating the program. Look for the application and detailed instructions at www.usitt.org in early September.
A few participants are still needed for the 2005 Costume Symposium to be held August 5 to 7 based at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Virginia. For more information or applications, call 800-93USITT or click through to the Costume Design & Technology area of www.usitt.org.
