Information about the slide show DVD
1. We need at least 60 photos uploaded from parents in order to produce the slide show for you. If we don't get at least 60 photos by the deadline, we won't produce the slide show. Parents often need to be reminded to upload their photos, so feel free to use our new Send Email feature on your Participants page to send out a reminder to them.
2. The deadline for uploading photos is 4 days before your science fair. Only photos that are submitted before the deadline will be included in the slide show. This is so that we can mail the DVD to you, and you can receive it before your science fair. The idea is that you can have the slide show running during your science fair as a fun little activity for your visitors.
3. Our Science Fair may email parents after your science fair is over, offering them a chance to purchase a copy of the slide show DVD. As the science fair coordinator, you can set the price of the DVD, similar to the way you set the price of display boards and header boards. Your school keeps the difference between the base cost and the price you set. Only PayPal payments will be accepted for slide show DVD orders, so you won't have to deal with checks coming in. You will need to distribute the DVDs to the students when they arrive.
4. If you are uncomfortable with any aspect of this feature, you can disable it by preventing parents from uploading their photos. You can do this from your Customize Photo Upload Page page.
That's it for now ... as always, let us know if you have any questions. We hope your planning is going smoothly ... there are a lot of science fairs coming up in March and April, so it's a busy time for everyone!
