PHOTOGRAPHS:
For your convenience, B.D.U.C. commissioned two fabulous photographers to capture  your talents on film. They are offering a photo package to contestants for a nominal fee of $40.00 per photo cd.  They will have 30 +++ good  quality shots. If you participated in a category with no finals, your disc should include your performance and trophy presentation, for champion and runners-up. If your category had preliminaries and finals, the preliminaries are on one disc. The finals, trophy presentation and Champion of Champions shots will be on another. You would need two discs to have a complete set of performance shots.

If you would like to purchase photos, please send the photographer a check, made out to them personally, for the appropriate amount of $40.00 per cd with the following: name/ category /side / and request.

(Saturday assigned sides. Sunday they both shot photos. See website for  samples)

Side A Saturday = photographer = Carl Sermon

Side B Saturday = photographer = Ruben Sanchez

"Hello Tonya and Atlantis,

Thank you so much for taking time and welcoming me and treating me and others like princesses at the BDUC. I truly enjoyed every moment. It was challenging and very very exciting over all. I just saw your tribe posting about your showcases. I would love to take a spot, drive from San Diego, to enjoy your venue. I am interested in Khoury if you have any spot available coming up. I love live music and I think this would be great experience for me."

Thanks, Dilek, Turkish Delight
