It must be in color and to scale.  You will provide design renderings of your concept before you build your set. You will have a map of your set and a detailed drawing of your set from the audience perspective.  In your explanation you will explain your design concept and thought process. Why did you choose these colors? Why did you use certain furniture? Why did you put the set pieces where you did? You will also describe how your design will be able to work on a real stage.
