Cate Blanchett Birthday Project 2021 and New Magazine Scan

Hello, Blanchetters!

The Cate Blanchett Birthday Project 2021 is here. And we got new magazine scan which is first for 2021.

The birthday project is an idea created by Eden, a fan from our community. Since 2015, she proposes a set of tasks to express our admiration and say happy birthday to Cate.

F N.2 – January 12th 2021

If you want to join the birthday project, please read the details below:

Welcome the 2021 (7th) Cate Blanchett Birthday Project!

Every year, for the past 7 years I’m trying to collaborate Cate Blanchett fans together in order to make something special for her birthday. And I am super excited to say that we have made 6 successful birthday projects together which has ALL arrived to Cate.

Cate Blanchett has influenced me and many more people through the years and this project is my way to say: Thank You. This year the project will surround CELEBRATING OURSELVES. 

Cate is a huge inspiration for all of us. She believes in celebrating ourselves as WHO WE ARE. If it’s as a woman, as a man, as a queer, as whoever we want to be, and this project is about that. It’s about being ourselves and celebrating us as who we are, because that’s where our true power lies.

This year we will create a fan cover for the ultimate Cate song “You Don’t Own Me” This is how it will work:

  • The amazing Maya has created an amazing piano cover for us. It is right here.
  • I want you to listen to the cover and sing the song! If you’re not sure, you can listen to Erich’s great intro here.
  • Then videotape yourself covering the song. You can create two different videos of Audio & a video OR make it in one. It doesn’t really matter
  • The most important thing here is that the Audio needs to be AS CLEAN AS POSSIBLE.
    Meaning: I want to hear your singing voice only! The playback will be in your headphones but not for me to hear it.  
  • If you are a dancer or a performer this section is to you: You can dance/ perform to the piano cover and I will add that to our clip.

Some things to get out of the way:

  • I’m not singer and I’m not expecting you to be ones. It’s just you making something fun for Cate! 🙂
  • The song is not very difficult, so if there are certain parts you feel you are better at, feel free to sing only them. Anyways, I promise I’ll edit it the way we will hear your BEST parts
  • This is also the first time I’m doing something like that, so be supportive and have fun!

How does it work?

  • Send an email with your Name, Age & Country
  • Mention in the email if you joined any of the past projects and if yes mention the year
  • Send your Audio & video as one / two files
  • Make sure we hear only your singing voice in the recording (and not the piano cover. A great way to do that is to put headphones on and listen to the piano over there)

Rules:

  • Keep an appropriate language
  • Letting you know the project will be released ONLINE

Deadline

All projects should arrive until APRIL 15TH, 2021. Send them all to the following address: CBFbirthday2015@gmail.com (the same one from past years) If you have any questions you can ask me here on the  ask box / twitter email .

Taking part in the project this year + special thanks: Cate Blanchett DailyQueen CateCate Blanchett FanErichAbbey and Maya.

FAQs

  • Who can participate the project? – Everyone who wants to.
  • Can I send a picture of myself with a happy birthday poster? You can include that. but it can’t be instead of the project itself.
  • Can you guarantee Cate will receive the book? – sadly not, but we will try our best to make this work.

  • Some aspects that changed or influenced the way you think thanks to Cate Blanchett (related to feminism)
  • A special thing you did or contributed to thanks to the motivation Cate Blanchett gave you
  • A story of success that happened to you thanks to the motivation Cate brought into your life

Important points:  

  • You can choose one aspect only
  • The story will be written UP TO 300 WORDS
  • You can (definitely) wish Cate a happy birthday but if you won’t follow the theme of the project you won’t be included!!
  • You can add a small video / photo related
  • The project will be released ONLINE

How does it work?

  • Send an email with your Name, Age & Country
  • Mention in the email if you joined any of the past projects and if yes mention the year
  • Write the aspect you wish to write about
  • Share your project part

Rules:

  • Keep an appropriate language
