#BOTT4EDU: Program Policies and Statements

Competitive Program Environment Statement

Thank you for choosing to participate in our upcoming Battle of the Teal program and  showcase. This is a big decision to make for any upcoming visual and/or performing artist. You are presented with leveled program options to utilize your artistic abilities just for fun (Level 1) and to advance to where you are comfortable to attend a call for artists/ entries (Level 2) before officially deciding to present your artistic abilities in front of a live / virtual audience (Level 3 – the showcase) and have your work reviewed / critiqued by a panel of local professional artists (Adjudication panel). In order to prepare for this life-changing experience, there are a few things to consider and our production team is with you every step of the way.

Our goal is to prepare all participating artists in the Battle of the Teal program for the judging part of the showcase.  We strive to provide a healthy, educational, and enriching experience to those we serve. All Battle of the Teal applicants should be prepared to receive constructive feedback on their art form(s) while participating in the program.  All feedback is meant to be a positive learning experience and to help artists work on their strengths and weaknesses and improve in their art form(s).

The showcase is meant to be fun, educational, supportive and helpful to all participating  artists.

The Battle of the Teal staff and volunteers, including but not limited to: Executive Team, Advisory Board, Adjudication Panel, Art Network (collectively called the “Battle of the Teal Team”) will do their best to:

  • Create a welcoming and education environment for all applicants
  • Prepare all applicants to receive the constructive feedback during the process
  • Inform all applicants about the processes, rules and expectations of the showcase
  • Provide guidance through coaching and mentoring activities connected with the program

The feedback of the adjudication panel members or other reviewers is / may be subjective; this is not a reflection of your lack of abilities or creativity but merely an opinion. Opinions may vary from person to person. We encourage you to continue expressing yourself through the chosen art form(s) and continue being creative. The Battle of the Teal team is here to support you. We encourage you to reach out to us and tell us about your experience.
