Application Tips:

  1. Relevant to QMAC
    • While we can’t wait to see all the crazy, unique ideas you have for creative pieces, remember that at the end of the day you’re applying to QMAC and therefore, your creative should have some connection to the conference.
  2. Make it a campaign for yourself
    • Play to your strengths when creating the best marketing campaign strategy possible and find a way to stand out and differentiate yourself from all the other applicants
  3. Be yourself!
    • Share who you really are, not who you think we want you to be. Why does QMAC want YOU?
  4. Get creative
    • From songs to paintings to music videos, you really cannot go wrong with what you pick to do for your creative. We’re looking for originality and a clear passion for both marketing and QMAC within your creative piece.

If you’re writing an article for The Nucleus instead of submitting a creative component, we’ve got some advice for you too! Check out these 3 BONUS Tips for writing a Nucleus article:
