The effigy designs must contain some form of bamboo and be no taller than 30 feet high.
The effigy will be the center piece for the main burn on Saturday night, and all effigy construction should be completed by Thursday evening (or sooner) leading up to the event.
You’ll need to solicit your own volunteer team to help realize your dream and build the individual structures. Leadership is here to help find volunteers and previous artists are available for consultation. Structures may be built on-site or prefabricated.
All LNT guidelines must be followed before, during, and after the event. Nothing may be left behind post-event (nails, wood, or metal supports).
In addition to community members, and team leads are allowed to submit designs for consideration.
Designs will be selected by the Transformus Board of Directors without any conflict of interest.
Any fundraising events for the effigy construction need to use the disclaimer that each event is not Transformus-sponsored.
The majority of the grant funding will be sent out pre-event, with the remainder coming post-event. In addition, it is important to note that Transformus will send a 1099 to the grant winner for the 2016 tax cycle if the grant recipient is unable to provide receipts for expenditures. A 1099 will not be required if the grant recipient provides receipts for all expenses.
Effigy designs, sketches, CAD drawings etc. should be sent in electronic format to firstname.lastname@example.org and must be received no later than 11 pm on February 21, 2016.
We invite you to share your creativity with the Transformus family!
