Participants will have the opportunity to compete for exciting prizes in our annual layout and design contest, and also enjoy some fun social activities in the evenings. So mark it on your calendar and join us in Victoria this August for four fun-filled instructional days that will help you “hit the ground running” with your yearbook in September. See you there!

The Countdown is on… and some education has already begun!

Whew, what a summer! We’re at the tail end, with many administrators and teachers already back in their schools to get the year going. I can just picture students flocking to the beaches, the hills, the PNE and other favorite spots where they can enjoy these last full days of sun. Many are wrapping up summer jobs, or at least stockpiling the hours so that they can slow down to hit the books.

An eager group of yearbook students and advisors recently did just that at FutureBook’s annual Summer Workshop at St Michael’s University School in Victoria, BC. We had an intense yet exciting four-day workshop that culminated in some fantastic layouts and photos – not to mention friendships, new skills and a few laughs! Yearbook enthusiasts from Prince

 

George, Sa-Hali, Cambie, Vancouver Technical, Langley, Belmont and more joined forces to learn some new skills and hear from experienced advisors such as Rainer Mehl from Kitsilano and Rick Pelletier, recently retired from Delta. From key layout rules to FutureTools, working in RAW to choosing cover options, students were laden with a large amount of knowledge and resources to help get their yearbook off on the right foot. We threw in some fun and games, with Regis Feltpen making an appearance, and the fun acts of Morgan Cranny and his improv group.

It was an exciting time as we saw some hidden talent come to light in many cases, while others perfected their designs even further. Head to our Facebook page for a list of our winners – not only did they earn the respect of their peers, they took home some coveted prizes such as Canuck tickets and speaker systems!

In the weeks to come we will share many of those tips and tricks from the workshop, both in the classroom but also here on our blog. If you attended the workshop, we would love your feedback and photos if you would like to share the wealth!
