DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 1st, 2024
It's a pleasure for all of us at PAGEANT DESIGN to be able to work with you! We are the official graphic designers of your Program Book and are here to design awesome-looking pages for each one of you! Our goal is to make sure each and every one of you look awesome on the printed page!
• Being a MISS BLACK USA HAWAII / ALASKA Delegate comes with lots of great perks, including one (1) FREE Full Page, Single Photo ad design! We call this page your "STANDARD" page and there are no fees associated with it to worry about! PLEASE NOTE: this applies *only* to the STANDARD option. All other options carry additional, optional fees.
• All STANDARD pages will feature your photo of choice (we recommend a professional studio photo), your full Name and your official Title. No other text is allowed (only in the case of STANDARD pages). We do this to maintain a level of visual consistency throughout all the STANDARD pages.
• In additional to our STANDARD option, we also offer you multiple PREMIUM options!
This is entirely optional! These additional pages are welcome and encouraged, and many design options are available, including an awesome-looking, magazine-style 2-page "spread"! PLUS, an autograph card option and also a button!
You can see many examples of PREMIUM pages above.
• The PREMIUM options carry an additional design fee. This covers the graphic design cost, payable to PAGEANT DESIGN on this same page. Prices vary depending on your choice of lay-out.
• We are the ONLY authorized designers for your ad page/s. In order to maintain a consistent, professional and visually coherent product, *No other designers are allowed*.

IMPORTANT NOTES, TIPS & RECOMMENDATIONS
PLEASE READ IN FULL!
A NOTE ON HIGH RESOLUTION ("Hi-Res") PHOTOS
• NO LOW RESOLUTION IMAGES!
We want to make sure your Ad looks great once printed! But for that, we need a *high resolution* photo file (and one *without* any photographer "watermarks" or super-imposed logos).
How to retrieve the original, hi-res file? Easy!
Your photographer should have this file, or it could have been provided to you on a CD or a download link
(for example, a Dropbox link... if so, please do share that link with us).
Please also note the following:
- do not use any non-professional software to crop or alter the original image file in any way.
- please use a desktop computer instead of a phone when submitting the photo
- Do *NOT* take a "screenshot" of the photo with your phone
- if using a desktop or laptop computer is not possible, please always select "actual size" or "large" when sending the file and never "small" or "medium".
- in all cases, please do not "copy and paste" the photo to the body of the e-mail message, but add it as an attachment instead.
- If you have a download link provided to you by your photographer, please share that link with us.
Please note: due to the fact that the photo selection for an ad page is a very personal one, we kindly ask that you choose the image you'd like to use on your ad page yourself and that you ensure that you send us the ***correct*** image file. We are always happy to offer our advise and recommendation in the event that you are not sure what photo to use, but it's important that YOU are 100% happy with the photo you choose for your ad page!
MAKE SURE YOU SEND US THE CORRECT PHOTO!
The photo determines the entire lay-out and design of your ad page, so please do note that if you change your mind and decide to use a different photo after-the-fact (after the page has been designed using the photo originally submitted by you), a new order would be required. We can *not* change the photo once an ad page has been designed. Please do keep this in mind and always ensure you send us the correct image file.
