Surprise by Design Applicant Rules

1. You must own the property or have written permission from the owner in order to participate in the show.

2. You must be willing and able to participate in the makeover project — i.e., painting, lifting, planting, whatever is needed to get the job done. You may be asked to recruit other friends and family depending on the scope of the makeover.

3. You must be able to keep this a secret from your loved one!!

4. You must be available to assist with the makeover, which could take place any day of the week. (Don't worry, it's scheduled well in advance).

5. For inside projects, the room must be at least 12 feet x 12 feet — big enough for the production crew to record the makeover.

6. Rooms must be furnished, although part of the makeover may include adding or removing furniture.

In addition to completing the online form, please send a video and/or still photos (emailing is acceptable) of you and the person you'd like to surprise.* (Remember to be sneaky.) The video should show the outside of the home and a brief tour of the entire house, including the room or yard you'd like renovated. Then talk in front of the camera and explain why your friend or loved one deserves the surprise. (For example: After Mark and Karen adopted a little girl from India, adoption expenses left them without the money to redecorate.) Hint: The best story wins!

*Note: Unfortunately, we will not be able to return videos or pictures. Any and all materials submitted to DCI and the producer as part of this application shall become the property of DCI and shall not be returned.

Send video(s), still pictures and completed application to the address below**. Make sure all tapes and photos are clearly labeled with your name, address and phone number.
