Last week I had a phone conversation with Marina my adviser about my ideas for unit two and gold in general.
It was said that I should develop a time scale for completing gold.
In regards to my idea for unit 2 I need to work on a action plan, look at project planning documents and websites for ideas on how to plan out the project. I should start to think about any support I might need in the project for example sponsors to help finical wise and also where I would want the exhibition and what audience it could be targeted at but also the out comes I hope from the project.
Marina also suggested for to contact the local council and to ask the person who organize their annal photography competition for help or ideas on how to work on the project and she has also sent me a website to look at for resources though the project which are: http://www.artsaward.org.uk/gallery/?gallery=tier2 and some thoughts to cover in my action plans:
Research on the Arts Award website and perhaps on other sites, an art project planning guide or template
Have a think about timescales and begin to draw a schedule up
Think about your audience – who is the competition for
Think about your aims – why are you doing the competition? Why that particular audience?
Is their a brief for the competition (e.g them, age rage, format)
How will people submit their entries?
How will you judge the competition?
Think about a marketing plan – at what points in the schedule will you contact the local paper? Will you need coverage on the radio?
Where will you hold the exhibition? How will you hang the exhibition?
Do you need funding and if so for what parts of the project?
Where could you get this from?
