I am applying to a writing program and it requests:

"In order for an application to be considered, two separate CDs containing the following items must be submitted during the submission period (i.e., May 1, 2013 through May 31, 2013) to the
contact mailing address provided below.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
On the first CD, please provide the following items:
1. Clearly label with your name and identify as Application
2. Completed application
3. Employment Resume
4. An autobiographical summary
5. Statement of interest capturing the applicants journey
thus far in pursuing a career as a television writer (500
words or less)
6. Two letters of recommendation from entertainment
professionals currently working in the industry
7. Legal Release (signature required)"

The application and legal release need to be filled out by hand, but then put onto a CD. How would I go about doing that? Take a picture of them? Scan them? It seems strange to me.

Thanks.

Scan, save as PDF, burn to CD.

What kind of organization wants CDs? What is this, 1996?

Bwah haa!

A clue about Disney - low pay, long hours, no rights. Probably not quite so bad now that Eisner is gone, but be careful. Oh yeah, be sure to note on the CD that it is copyrighted. They like that.

They expect you to already own a computer and access to a scanner. So per their request they want it all scanned for the first CD. The second CD they want it in PDF format.
