Eleven teen bands will be chosen to take center stage and battle for the title of champion of Teen Scene’s main event: the City of Carlsbad Battle of the Bands. Bands will be judged by music industry professionals for on-stage presence, vocal ability, instrumental talents, originality and crowd response.

Submit your short film of up to five minutes for showing in the Teen Scene film festival! Twelve films will be selected and showcased at the event. Films can have any subject matter and must be created, produced, directed and edited by teens. They will be pre-screened for appropriateness and to ensure they are suitable for viewing by young audiences. Film entry deadline is Jan. 18, 2013.
Share your original artwork with neighbors and friends by submitting it for display in the Teen Scene art gallery! Paintings, drawings, ceramic pieces, photos and works in any other art medium are welcome. Artwork entry deadline is Jan. 18, 2013.
