Competition Facts:

Creativity is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. The concept of thinking that the original piece needs to be the WOW factor. Creativity is about unleashing the potential of the mind to conceive new ideas. Those concepts could manifest themselves in any number of ways, but most often, they become something we can see.
“If you can’t fit in you should stand out.”
-Dave Ray

**In past Beauty Shows, competitors that chose to disregard
any rule had significant point reduction and severely
decreased their opportunity to win the competition.
