On this Saturday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Global Center for Health Innovation, 1 St Clair Ave NE, the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee
for the Republican National Convention (RNC) will hold a casting call for area residents interested in being considered to appear on temporary signage that will welcome RNC visitors to Cleveland. Two hundred tickets will be available beginning at 8:45 a.m. for those interested in being photographed that day.
Participants will be asked to sign a waiver agreeing to the terms of the photo shoot:
--Participants must be 18 or older and a resident of Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Portage, Geauga or Lake counties.
--Participants will not be allowed to select the image they would like us to use.
--Use of photos is not guaranteed.
In addition, participants should note the following:
--Participants will be photographed in the order in which they arrive. Please come prepared to stand in line until your ticket number is called; consider bringing light refreshments.
--Only one person will appear in each image.
--Participants will be asked to provide their name, home address, email address and their career/profession/favorite role in life for possible inclusion on the signage. Participants should wear an outfit that is consistent with that role.
--Participants are not permitted to wear logos, branding or messages of any kind. Solid colors other than white are best; please avoid patterns or bright colors.
--Participants must agree to a background check if selected for final use (consistent with any Host Committee recruitment effort).
--Parking is available throughout the area – including meters and paid lots and garages.
The Host Committee will select the approximately 50 photos to be used on 200 street pole banners Downtown and in University Circle. Those who are selected for the campaign will be notified in late April. Signage will be installed in the weeks leading up to the Convention and will be removed following the event.
