Introducing yourself in the competition
Every contest, every performance for any person is another exam, and as every exam is not only excitement, but also invaluable experience, the opportunity for personal growth and development.
If you were offered to participate in the contest, agree! In this article, we will discuss how to prepare a winning presentation of yourself in the competition, because, as is known, the first impression is the brightest and most memorable. What should be paid special attention to your first appearance on the scene remembered all.
Business card, presenting yourself at the contest is not only the first and exciting stage, it gives a reserve to the general mood of the participant. It is the first contest that should characterize you from the most advantageous positions.
First you need to decide in which way you will perform. Romantic, business, sporty or fatal girl. From your choice will depend on the whole concept of presenting yourself at the competition. And do not torture yourself and try on an image in which you feel uncomfortable. Be natural and at ease. If you are a rocker, let everyone know about it.
What to wear?
Identify with the attire is a very important moment of preparation for the competition. With all the variety of ready-made dresses for a modern girl, it is sometimes very difficult to make a choice. If you have the opportunity to sew a dress to the contest for a fashion designer on an individual order (and if this is a presentation of yourself at a beauty contest, they will need more than one), use this. In this case, no one will be exactly the same!
You have to present yourself at the Miss-. "(For example, school, university, department or company, hotel, and maybe the city)? In this case, it is interesting to look at national costumes or outfits with decorative elements. But do not overdo it: your outfit must first of all be comfortable and not constraining the movement. The same can be said about shoes. It's always a bit scary to look at the contestants, who walk uncertainly through the stage on high heels. Convenience and once again convenience!
With decorations and accessories, the main rule is a sense of proportion. Try to resist the temptation to "put on all the best at once."
As Igor Krutoy said in his composition, "this world loves the winners".
Your presentation of yourself at the contest should radiate so much self-confidence that your mom is not only believed in your star. It must be believed by all present! Calm self-confidence without arrogance and vanity, self-control and a positive attitude towards competitors - that's the guarantee of your advantage.
If you tend to be embarrassed and shy in public, work the day before with your fighting spirit. Autotraining and other methods of persuasion will work.
Even if something went wrong, do not forget about the smile - it disarms anyone and gives confidence to you.
After you have subdued all present with your smart appearance (you were seen and gasped), you have to "finish off" the jailed members of the jury with content. As they say, in this case, the saying will show itself in action: they meet in clothes - they see off to the mind.
The original presentation of the contest depends on the content of the presentation. Dry biographical data will not be enough. Do not forget that you should not just talk about yourself, but boast, what a sin to hide! Therefore, boldly shine and surprise the audience.
If you are modest by nature, and talk about your victories - part of the creative task, you can resort to a method of ridiculous exaggeration. Speaking of your merits, with a laugh, call yourself a "world champion", an "expert", a "master", a "well-deserved figure", etc. This you can defuse the atmosphere and be known as a person with a great sense of humor.
By the way, about the sense of humor. It either is, or it is not. It is not necessary to learn jokes in the hope of putting them somewhere in time. As a rule, jokes, born of impromptu, are much more valuable. Be natural and do not try to please by all means.
And maybe in verse?
Another variant of self-presentation is to fulfill it in a poetic form. If you feel yourself in a poetic power, you can come to the aid of His Majesty the verse. Representing yourself in the contest in verse can also be prepared on the basis of already written classical works. They can be reshaped, altered, adding their zest or pepper.
At present, there is no need to be the second Pushkin to master this science. The Internet offers a rich variety of versatile presentations for every taste.
Work on the text, read it several times out loud, trying "on the tongue" all the irregularities and roughness. If the text has a word or expression on which you stumble - remove it or replace it with a synonym.
Learn and rehearse your speech to keep on stage confidently and at ease. Add emotion and expressiveness to your voice.
Time of performance
Here the main thing is not to abuse the attention of spectators and strictly follow the rules prescribed in the regulations on the competition.
It is clear that you could talk about yourself for hours, but you will have to limit yourself to 3-5 minutes (this is usually the time for self-presentation).
It is very profitable to perceive yourself at the contest with musical accompaniment. If the sound engineer turns on a light melody during the text you are making, this will give the right atmosphere to your performance. And if you have a musical ear and you can sing it yourself - it is able to hit the jury on the spot.
The only wish is - do not pursue fashion, do not try to read rap about yourself if this is not your horse. Choose a song that will be combined with your image, turn your eyes to the classics, hits of the past.
It is up to you to attract support groups to your speech or not. But by attracting friends and colleagues to your presentation, be prepared for the fact that at some point they can pull the blanket of spectator attention to themselves. Do you need this?
If you use the support group in representing yourself in the contest, remain the central figure in this speech. Do not give anyone the palm tree, even if they are your friends. Competition is yours!
Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that the contestants are lost on the background of the performance of a brighter support group.
If you want to somehow illustrate your story about yourself, it's best to use a video presentation. Please note that the number of frames in the video sequence should not exceed 15-20. When creating slides, observe a uniform style and color scheme. Avoid pretentiousness and animation effects. Do not forget that this presentation should complement your presentation, and not vice versa!
If you or someone you know can draw, this can be used well in self-presentation. Draw a slide of your story in the style of a comic strip on the sheets of Whatman and beat it with the help of a support group.
Gild the handle
Of course, you will not bribe anyone, and your participation in the contest will be fair, but the rules are not forbidden to make small presents to the members of the jury. Let it be small souvenirs made by yourself (at the same time you also demonstrate your abilities in the case) or sweet surprises, or a funny message.
Remember: attention is pleasing to everyone, and jury members are the same people as the rest. The main thing is to make your present sincerely, without demanding anything in return.
