My name is L?kan Mabayoje, and I wanted to personally introduce myself as the Chair for the upcoming 52nd Dallas Show scheduled for Saturday, June 05, 2021. Our team has been hard at work since July, evaluating current operations and the overall Dallas Show experience and we are excited to announce several new features.
First, we're kicking off a new streamlined submission process. Historically, participants have had to factor in multiple things into the total cost of an entry: entry fees, printing, packaging, and shipping fees. For 2021, all entries will now be submitted digitally on our new online judging platform. Additionally, creative works done in 2019 and 2020 (2 years) will be allowed for entry submission to help give the creative community a 5-star show.
Second, is an all-new judging process. Part of what makes the Dallas Show unique is the hospitality rendered in service of the judges selected for the Show. To leverage the all-new submission process, I am happy to share our two-phased judging process. The first phase will be judged digitally; selected entries will be stamped into the Show gallery and eligible for awards. The second phase will require only selected entries to be shipped. Per tradition, judges will be treated to a memorable weekend in Dallas as they judge the Show selections for awards.
This is just a taste of the many things the team has been working on. As part of The Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC), the Dallas Show is here to celebrate the creative excellence of all creative professionals across different phases of their journey, while collectively raising the standard from our backyard and beyond. Our greatest strength lies in the power of our community-the connections that transcend distance and time. Our commitment to the creative community has never changed, and I look forward to working together and continuing to grow. If you have any questions about our new processes, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let''s work together to make this happen!
I am excited to see your creative expressions through your entries and hopefully share a drink with you at the Show. The team is monitoring health and safety guidelines from the city and will always put the welfare of our community first. So, whether it''s virtual or in Dallas, I hope to see you at the Dallas Show in 2021.
Thank you and have a great day!
