Hey Grad Students! Compete in Three 4 Three at Puertográfico!
Want to take a chance at winning free conference registration for our 2021 conference in Providence? Well, then, have we got an opportunity for you!
SGCI and our 2020 San Juan steering committee are excited to announce our Three 4 Three thesis competition for current graduate students at Puertográfico. For PhD candidates there is a completion called the Three Minute Thesis or 3MT®. You can find amazing examples of 3MT® presentations here. We cannot offer this specific competition because our grad students are not working towards doctorates. But we can have similar fun! Three 4 Three will be for MFA students, those pursuing our field’s terminal degree. You get three slides for three minutes to tell us about your MFA thesis.
Participants in the Three 4 Three thesis competition will hone their presentation skills and build the means to skillfully present their thesis constructs to artists and non-artists alike.
What are the rules of participation in Three 4 Three?
You may use three projected images or one movie. Visuals will be presented from the beginning of the presentation and stop precisely at the end.
No frills—costumes, instruments, props, examples of work, distractions from you image and presentation—are permitted.
You have precisely three minutes for your presentation. Those exceeding three minutes will be disqualified.
When you start, your three minutes starts. No exceptions..
The Three 4 Three judges evaluations are final.
The preliminary round of our competition will take place on Friday, April 3, 2020, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Three finalists will present their Three 4 Threes at the beginning of our awards ceremony Saturday, April 4, 2020 at 6:00 PM. The Three 4 Three winner will be announced at the end of the ceremony. The winner receives a free 2021 conference registration!
How can you participate?
We have 18 slots for competitors.
Each MFA program can nominate one graduate student.
