This presentation is designed to teach what judges are looking for in a good show, however, it is not necessarily only meant for competitors. It is for anyone wishing to create a show and understand the elements needed to hold viewer’s attention. It does not involve the technical aspects of using a software as everyone uses different software to create essays. Several samples of winning shows will be shown to describe the elements.
