HOW IT WORKS
Design it Forward Kentucky goes virtual.
This year we're inviting our neighbors in Indiana, Tennessee, Ohio, and West Virginia.
Students will form teams, no more than 3 students per team, 1 person teams are OK too
Schools may have up to 3 teams per college/university
Creative brief will be announced the night before competition begins
Teams will have most of the day on Friday to brand the client and prepare a presentation
Professional creatives will be on-hand during the day of the event to serve as mentors and will check in with all teams and give objective feedback throughout the day; this year we will have "Zoom Checkpoints" so students can log on and receive feedback
Each team will have 5 minutes to present their final solutions to the judges
