Need a project to put your visual mind to? The VRA Board invites you to participate in a design contest for the 2017 VRA Conference visual branding. The winning design will be used on the 2017 Conference website and print materials. Our conference branding in the past has consisted of logos, banners, or both (see examples below). We are leaving it flexible for you to be creative with your designs. The design may include original artwork, a photo, or a hybrid. Designs should be representative of Louisville, i.e. the skyline, waterfront, or things Louisville is known for (horses, baseball, bourbon, or arts scene, etc.).
Dimensions: 3000 pixels on the long side, 300 dpi
Preferred file format: TIFF
File size limit: 25MB
Required textual content: VRA 34 / Louisville KY / 2017
Optional content: “Unbridled Opportunities” / March 28-April 1, 2017
You may submit as many entries as you like, and we encourage you to involve students with an interest in attending the conference, even if they are not currently VRA members. The VRA Board will select a design and the winner will receive attribution on the 2017 conference website, as well as a $50 discount on 2017 Conference registration OR, if the winner is unable to attend the conference, a $50 discount on next year’s membership.
Designs should be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Submission deadline: September 2, 2016
Winner announced: September 9, 2016
