Yearbook Theme Package
Students who plan to use computers should bring a computer. Printers will be provided, but students may wish to bring their own printers. Photos will be on flash drives for these students. Templates will be in InDesign, but no software will be provided. Entries must be saved as PDFs and completely printed by the end of the contest.
A team of two contestants will be provided a fact sheet from which they will develop copy and designs for the opening theme spread and one division spread. The fact sheet will include a stated theme around which copy will be developed. Contestants not using a computer should bring a ruler, pencil, scissors, glue stick and dummy sheets. Contest is two hours.
• Theme copy captures the tone or mood of the year.
• Theme copy needs to be featurized, conversational and stylized rather than formulaic.
• Theme concept should dictate design.
