Info: what to enter, categories, prizes, etc
This contest is open to Scouts and Guides of all ages, belonging to an Association recognised by WOSM or WAGGGS. Entries may originate from any country.
No fee is required to participate, Design Your Law is completely free!
We strongly encourage younger individuals or age groups (Beavers, Cubs, Brownie, etc) to participate as well as teenagers, Rovers and Leaders.
There are no format/medium restrictions for your entry. You can submit any kind of creative concept from woodwork, paintings, photographs, sculptures, collages to videos, 3D animations, recycled material crafts and drawings. Please note this list is not exhaustive - so let your imagination run wild!
All you have to do is submit a concept with a detailed explanation of your project including sketches, measurements, materials, photographs and any other relevant information necessary for us to realise your idea. Please also include a paragraph that clearly explains how your project represents that point of the Scout Law.
If you have any questions or need help with more technical aspects of your entry, do not hesitate to contact us - pr[at]kisc.ch - we will be happy to help you!
The winning concepts will be produced by KISC and displayed permanently on our Campsite where they will be visible to the over 11,000 Scouts from all over the world that visit KISC each year! For example if your winning submission is a painting we might reproduce it as a banner or if you submit plans for a sculpture we might make it a reality.
To avoid any confusion or misunderstanding this contest adopts B.-P.'s original version of the Scout Law as stated on the WOSM website.
Each entry can represent one, and only one, point of the law and it can be an individual entry or a group one. There is no limitation on the number of entries per individual or group.
Entries can only be submitted via email to pr[at]kisc.ch with subject "Design Your Law".
Each entry must be accompanied by the completed participation form.
We ask participants to consider the following guidelines:
• All items must be able to be adaptable for outdoor display on the KISC Campsite.
• All items must be durable for long-term usage.
• Photographs must be in High Quality and in JPG or TIFF format.
• If your final piece is a drawing, graphic or painting it must be emailed in High Quality Print resolution PDF format.
• If your piece includes text it may be in any language but you must include an English translation for display purposes.
KISC reserves the right to use all submissions at any time or place including the possibility of adapting it to a specific format for display. KISC will acknowledge you as the designer if your idea is reproduced.
