Artistic Sculpture Competitions
Only fully registered attendees can enter the competitions. All entrys must be made from balloons.
You may build your competition pieces at any time, However large pieces can not be assembled in the competition area untill 8am friday. Please bring your entries to the Competition room, and receive a numbered tag. A convention staff member will verify the size category. Place the tag in front of your piece in a conspicuous manner (do not attach the tag to the piece). Place the piece with the tag in the front of your piece, on the correct table as directed. Once your piece has been put on a table, you must leave the room. A T&S staff photographer will move your piece the the photography area, take a picture of it, and they will place the entry back on the table. Once you enter your Sculpture in its place on a table, it cannot be touched. Please be aware that the competitions pieces may be moved by the Twist & Shout Staff as necessary for photography and to make room for other pieces.
A piece may have sound attached to it, however you need to show Twist & Shout security how to turn on and off or lower the volume of your creation, if the situation arises. Also, any display that has a button to activate a movement, or sound must be clearly labeled , and easily reached, for attendees, without disturbing the balloons. Any medium of attachment/decoration (IE: tape, glue, wire, monofiliment, paint, marker, hockey helmets, Etc, are allowed.) Only magnetic rigging will be allowed from ceiling if magnetic points are available. **Any special requirements such as electrical , helium (minimal available, cost at current cubic foot price), or any other requests must be made to Twist & Shout at by Monday the week before the convention, or they may not be honored.
