Get your entries ready for Best of Show at the Southwest Camp Conference!

We encourage every camp to submit entries in the following category for our “Best of Show” awards (please submit only one entry in each category):

Best Brochure
Best Photo
Best T-Shirt
Best Video

We will have two sets of awards – “Critic’s Choice” and “People’s Choice.” Attendees will vote for the People’s Choice awards in the categories of “Best Brochure,” “Best Photo,” and “Best T-Shirt.” Specially selected judges will vote for the Critic’s Choice awards in those categories as well as “Best Video.”

Just bring your entries with you and submit them at registration. We recommend that photos be printed on cardstock or photo paper at 8 x 10 or 8.5 x 11 size, and that videos either be accessible via YouTube (or another online source) or be loaded onto a thumb drive (your drive will be returned to you).

This is your camp’s chance to shine! We can’t wait to see your best!
